1 Speaking to the talmidim, Yeshua said: "There was a wealthy man who employed a general manager. Charges were brought to him that his manager was squandering his resources. 2 So he summoned him and asked him, `What is this I hear about you? Turn in your accounts, for you can no longer be manager.' 3 "`What am I to do?' said the manager to himself. `My boss is firing me, I'm not strong enough to dig ditches, and I'm ashamed to go begging. 4 Aha! I know what I'll do -- something that will make people welcome me into their homes after I've lost my job here!' 5 "So, after making appointments with each of his employer's debtors, he said to the first, `How much do you owe my boss?' 6 `Eight hundred gallons of olive oil,' he replied. `Take your note back,' he told him. `Now, quickly! Sit down and write one for four hundred!' 7 To the next he said, `And you, how much do you owe?' `A thousand bushels of wheat,' he replied. `Take your note back and write one for eight hundred.'
