The Parable of the Dishonest Manager

1 And he also said to the disciples, "A certain man was rich, who had a manager. And charges were brought to him that this person was squandering his possessions. 2 And he summoned him [and]a said to him, 'What is this I hear about you? Give the account of your management, because you can no longer manage.' 3 And the manager said to himself, 'What should I do, because my master is taking away the management from me? I am not strong enough to dig; I am ashamed to beg. 4 I know what I should do, so that when I am removed from the management they will welcome me into their homes!' 5 And he summoned each one of his own master's debtors [and]b said to the first, 'How much do you owe my master?' 6 And he said, 'A hundred measures of olive oil.' So he said to him, 'Take your promissory note and sit down quickly [and]c write fifty.'
