was also saying
to his disciples,
A certain man was rich
who had a steward,
this one had charges brought against him,
that he was squandering his master's property.
calling him in
he said to him,
What is this that I hear about you?
Give an accounting of your management,
yu can no longer be a steward.
the steward said
What shall I do
my master is taking the management
I am unable to dig,
I am ashamed to beg,
I know what I will do
when I am removed
so that they will welcome me
into their homes.
calling in each one of his master's debtors,
to the first one,
How much do you owe my master?
One hundred baths (appx 8 gal) of oil.
Take your bill
having sit down
to the other he said,
how much do you owe?
One hundred measures (appx. 10-12 bushels) of grain.
Take the bill
the unjust steward's master commended him,
because he acted shrewdly;
the sons of this age are more astute
than the sons of light
in relation to their own generation.
I tell you,
with the mammon of unrighteousness,
when it fails
so that they may receive you
into the eternal tents.
The one faithful with liitle is faithful with much,
the one dishonest with little is dishonest with
if you have not been faithful with dishonest mammon,
who will entrust you with that which is true?
if you have not been faithful with what belongs to another,
who will give you what belongs to you?
No one servant can serve two masters;
he will hate the one
the other he will love,
he will cling to the one
he will dispise the other.
You cannot serve God and mammon.
Pharisees were hearing these things
being lovers of money,
You are the ones justifying yourselves before men,
God knows your hearts;
because that which is esteemed by men is an abomination before God.
The Law and the Prophets were until John;
from that point
the Kingdom of God is being proclaimed
everyone is crowding into it.
it is easier for Heaven and earth to pass away
than for one stroke of the Law to fall.
Everyone divorcing his wife
-------- marrying another commits adultery,
having been divorced from her husband
the one marrying commits adultery.
a certain man was rich
he dressed himself
with purple and fine linen
as he daily feasted lavishly.
a certain beggar was regularly laid at his gate
covered with sores
desiring to be fed
with what fell off the rich man's table;
the dogs licked his sores.
it happened that the beggar died
--- ------ was carried
into Abraham's bosom;
the rich man also died
--- ---- --- was buried.
having lifed up his eyes
being in torment
he saw Abraham
from and distance
in his bosom.
Have mercy on me,
to dip the tip of his finger in water
cool my tongue
because I am suffering
in this flame.
that you received good things
in your life time,
Lazarus ------- bad things;
he is being comforted
you are suffering pain.
in addition to all this
between us and you stands a great chasm
so that those wishing to cross over from her to you cannot
can they pass over from there to us.
I ask you
to send him to my father's house,
I have five brothers,
so that he may bear witness to them,
lest they also come to this place of torment.
They have Moses and the prophets,
Let them hear them.
if one comes to them from the dead,
they will repent.
If they will not hear Moses and the prophets,
if one rise from the dead,
will they be persuaded.
1This saying also occurs in Matt. 6:24 in the context
of the Sermon on the Mount. The two texts have virtually the same wording.
The Matthean text will not be treated here.
