He also said to the disciples, "There was a rich man who had 1a manager, and charges were brought to him that this man was wasting his possessions.
And he called him and said to him, 'What is this that I hear about you? Turn in the account of your 2management, for you can no longer be manager.'
And the manager said to himself, 'What shall I do, since my master is taking the management away from me? I am not strong enough to dig, and I am ashamed to beg.
I have decided what to do, so that when I am removed from management, people may receive me into their houses.'
So, summoning his master's debtors one by one, he said to the first, 'How much do you owe my master?'
He said, 'A hundred measures of oil.' He said to him, 'Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.'
