Faithful in the unrighteous mammon (en twi adikwi mamwnai). In the use of what is considered "unrighteous" as it so often is. Condition of the first class, "if ye did not prove to be" (ei ouk egenesqe). Failure here forfeits confidence in "the true riches" (to alhqinon). There is no sadder story than to see a preacher go down by the wrong use of money, caught in this snare of the devil.
