said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me; and all I have is thine. It was meet that we should make merry, and glad; for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; was lost, and is found.
Luke, Chapter 16
Chapter (16th)
<​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. 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. Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? For my Lord taketh away from me my <​the​> stewardship. I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed. I am resolved what to do; that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses. So he called every one of his lord’s debtors, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my Lord? And he said, A hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him; Take thy bill, and set down quickly, and write fifty. 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 four score. And the Lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely; for the children of this world are wiser in their generation, of light than the chil<​2/​>dren of light. <​2/​> And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends, of the mamon of unrighteousness; that when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations. He who is faithfull in that which is least is faithfull also in much; and he who is unjust <​in​> the least is also unjust in much. If therefore, ye have not been faithfull in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? And if ye have not been faithfull in that which is another man’s, who shall give unto you that which is your own own? No servent can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and dispise <​2<​3​>/​> the other. Ye cannot serve God and Mammon. <​2<​3​>/​> And the Pharasees also, who were covetous, heard all these things; and they derided him. 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 an abomination in the sight of God. and they said unto him, we <​We​> have the law and the prophets, [p. 85 (second numbering)]
