Luke 16

TMB 1 And He said also unto His disciples, "There was a certain rich man who had a steward, and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods. NIV 1 Jesus told his disciples: "There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions. TMB 2 And he called him and said unto him, `How is it that I hear this of thee? Give an account of thy stewardship, for thou mayest be no longer steward.' NIV 2 So he called him in and asked him, 'What is this I hear about you? Give an account of your management, because you cannot be manager any longer.' TMB 3 Then the steward said within himself, `What shall I do? For my lord taketh away from me the stewardship. I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. NIV 3 "The manager said to himself, 'What shall I do now? My master is taking away my job. I'm not strong enough to dig, and I'm ashamed to beg-- TMB 4 I am resolved what to do, that when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.' NIV 4 I know what I'll do so that, when I lose my job here, people will welcome me into their houses.' TMB 5 So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, `How much owest thou unto my lord?' NIV 5 "So he called in each one of his master's debtors. He asked the first, 'How much do you owe my master?' TMB 6 And he said, `A hundred measures of oil.' And he said to him, `Take thy bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.' NIV 6 " 'Eight hundred gallons of olive oil,' he replied. "The manager told him, 'Take your bill, sit down quickly, and make it four hundred.' TMB 7 Then said he to another, `And how much owest thou?' And he said, `A hundred measures of wheat.' And he said unto him, `Take thy bill and write fourscore.' NIV 7 "Then he asked the second, 'And how much do you owe?' " 'A thousand bushels of wheat,' he replied. "He told him, 'Take your bill and make it eight hundred.' TMB 8 And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely; for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light. NIV 8 "The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light. TMB 9 And I say unto you, make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness, that when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. NIV 9 I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. TMB 10 He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much; and he that is unjust in the least, is unjust also in much. NIV 10 "Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. TMB 11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? NIV 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? TMB 12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own? NIV 12 And if you have not been trustworthy with someone else's property, who will give you property of your own? TMB 13 No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon." NIV 13 "No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." TMB 14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things, and they derided Him. NIV 14 The Pharisees, who loved money, heard all this and were sneering at Jesus. TMB 15 And He said unto them, "Ye are they who justify yourselves before men, but God knoweth your hearts. For that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God. NIV 15 He said to them, "You are the ones who justify yourselves in the eyes of men, but God knows your hearts. What is highly valued among men is detestable in God's sight. TMB 16 "The Law and the Prophets were until John. Since that time the Kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it. NIV 16 "The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it. TMB 17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than one tittle of the law to fail. NIV 17 It is easier for heaven and earth to disappear than for the least stroke of a pen to drop out of the Law. TMB 18 "Whosoever putteth away his wife and marrieth another committeth adultery; and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery. NIV 18 "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery. TMB 19 "There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and fared sumptuously every day. NIV 19 "There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every day. TMB 20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, who was laid at his gate, full of sores NIV 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores TMB 21 and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table. Moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. NIV 21 and longing to eat what fell from the rich man's table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores. TMB 22 And it came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and was buried. NIV 22 "The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to Abraham's side. The rich man also died and was buried. TMB 23 And in hell, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar off and Lazarus in his bosom. NIV 23 In hell, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. TMB 24 And he cried and said, `Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus that he may dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.' NIV 24 So he called to him, 'Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.' TMB 25 But Abraham said, `Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime received thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things; but now he is comforted and thou art tormented. NIV 25 "But Abraham replied, 'Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. TMB 26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, so that they who would pass from here to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from there.' NIV 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.' TMB 27 Then he said, `I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house, NIV 27 "He answered, 'Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father's house, TMB 28 for I have five brethren, that he may testify unto them lest they also come into this place of torment.' NIV 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.' TMB 29 Abraham said unto him, `They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' NIV 29 "Abraham replied, 'They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.' TMB 30 And he said, `Nay, father Abraham; but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.' NIV 30 " 'No, father Abraham,' he said, 'but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.' TMB 31 And Abraham said unto him, `If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded though one rose from the dead.'" NIV 31 "He said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.' "
