Give me an accounting of your management, because you cannot be my manager any longer.' 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.’ NRS 3 Then the manager said to himself, "What will I do, now that my master is taking the position away from me?

I’m not strong enough to dig, and I’m ashamed to beg— NRS 4 I have decided what to do so that, when I am dismissed as manager, people may welcome me into their homes.'

NIV 7 “Then he asked the second, ‘And how much do you owe?’ “ ‘A thousand bushelsof wheat,’ he replied. “He told him, ‘Take your bill and make it eight hundred.’ NRS 8 And his master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly; for the children of this age are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation than are 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. NRS 9 And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of dishonest wealth so that when it is gone, they may welcome you into the eternal homes. 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. NRS 10 "Whoever is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much; and whoever is dishonest in a very little is dishonest 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. NRS 11 If then you have not been faithful with the dishonest wealth, who will entrust to you the true riches? NIV 11 So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? NRS 12 And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to another, who will give you what 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? NRS 13 No slave can serve two masters; for a slave will either hate the one and love the other, or be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth." NIV 13 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
