Luke 16


16:1 And he said also to his disciples, There was a certain rich
 man who had a steward; and the same was accused to him that he
 had wasted his goods.
16:2 And he called him, and said to him, How is it that I hear
 this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship: for thou
 mayest be no longer steward.
16:3 Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for
 my lord taketh from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; I am
 ashamed to beg.
16:4 I am resolved what to do, that when I am removed from the
 stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
16:5 So he called every one of his lord's debtors, and said to
 the first, How much owest thou to my lord?
16:6 And he said, A hundred measures of oil. And he said to him,
 Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
16:7 Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he
 said, A hundred measures of wheat. And he said to him, Take thy
 bill, and write eighty.
16:8 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.
16:9 And I say to you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon
 of unrighteousness; that when ye fail, they may receive you
 into everlasting habitations.
16:10 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.
16:11 If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous
 mammon, who will commit to your trust the true [riches]?
16:12 And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another
 man's, who will give you that which is your own?
16:13 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.
16:14 And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these
 things, and they derided him.
16:15 And he said to 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.
16:16 The law and the prophets [were] until John: since that
 time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth
 into it.
16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away, than
 one tittle of the law to fail.
16:18 Whoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another,
 committeth adultery; and whoever marrieth her that is put away
 from [her] husband, committeth adultery.
16:19 There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple
 and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, who was laid
 at his gate, full of sores,
16:21 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the
 rich man's table: moreover, the dogs came and licked his sores.
16:22 And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried
 by angels into Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died, and was
 buried:
16:23 And in hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments, and
 seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
16:24 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.
16:25 But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy life-time
 receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things:
 but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
16:26 And besides all this, between us and you there is a great
 gulf fixed: so that they who would pass from hence to you,
 cannot; neither can they pass to us, that [would come] from
 thence.
16:27 Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou
 wouldst send him to my father's house:
16:28 For I have five brethren; that he may testify to them,
 lest they also come into this place of torment.
16:29 Abraham saith to him, They have Moses and the prophets;
 let them hear them.
16:30 And he said, No, father Abraham: but if one shall go to
 them from the dead, they will repent.
16:31 And he said to him, If they hear not Moses and the
 prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one shall rise
 from the dead.
