YLT 1 And he said also unto his disciples, `A certain man was rich, who had a steward, and he was accused to him as scattering his goods; NIV 1 Jesus told his disciples: "There was a rich man whose manager was accused of wasting his possessions. YLT 2 and having called him, he said to him, What [is] this I hear about thee? render the account of thy stewardship, for thou mayest not any longer be 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.' YLT 3 `And the steward said in himself, What shall I do, because my lord doth take away the stewardship from me? to dig I am not able, 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-- YLT 4 I have known what I shall do, that, when I may be removed from the stewardship, they may receive me to 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.' YLT 5 `And having called near each one of his lord's debtors, he said to the first, How much dost thou owe to 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?' YLT 6 and he said, A hundred baths of oil; and he said to him, Take thy bill, and having sat down 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.'
