God loves the (IE) rich

At least in some IE linguistic groups. How many? The
concept of divinity and riches seems closely
associated in Slavic (Bog/h/--Bo/a.g/h/atii), Sanskrit
(various baha- words?), certainly in Latin (dives).
But not in Germanic, where wealth and power converge.
And French follows the Franks here probably. English
the Anglo-Saxons. What about the rest of IE? I vaguely
remember Greek "eudaimon" (good demon) but that's not
exactly God?
