Luke 16 (WEBP)

[1] He also said to his disciples, “There was a certain rich man who had a manager. An accusation was made to him that this man was wasting his possessions.
[2] He called him, and said to him, ‘What is this that I hear about you? Give an accounting of your management, for you can no longer be manager.’
[3] “The manager said within himself, ‘What will I do, seeing that my lord is taking away the management position from me? I don’t have strength to dig. I am ashamed to beg.
[4] I know what I will do, so that when I am removed from management, they may receive me into their houses.’
[5] Calling each one of his lord’s debtors to him, he said to the first, ‘How much do you owe to my lord?’
[6] He said, ‘A hundred batos° of oil.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill, and sit down quickly and write fifty.’
[7] Then he said to another, ‘How much do you owe?’ He said, ‘A hundred cors° of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill, and write eighty.’
[8] “His lord commended the dishonest manager because he had done wisely, for the children of this world are, in their own generation, wiser than the children of the light.
[9] I tell you, make for yourselves friends by means of unrighteous mammon, so that when you fail, they may receive you into the eternal tents.
[10] He who is faithful in a very little is faithful also in much. He who is dishonest in a very little is also dishonest in much.
[11] If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
[12] If you have not been faithful in that which is another’s, who will give you that which is your own?
[13] No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to one and despise the other. You aren’t able to serve God and Mammon.”°
[14] The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they scoffed at him.
[15] He said to them, “You are those who justify yourselves in the sight of men, but God knows your hearts. For that which is exalted among men is an abomination in the sight of God.
[16] “The law and the prophets were until John. From that time the Good News of God’s Kingdom is preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it.
[17] But it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than for one tiny stroke of a pen in the law to fall.
[18] “Everyone who divorces his wife and marries another commits adultery. He who marries one who is divorced from a husband commits adultery.
[19] “Now there was a certain rich man, and he was clothed in purple and fine linen, living in luxury every day.
[20] A certain beggar, named Lazarus, was taken to his gate, full of sores,
[21] and desiring to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table. Yes, even the dogs came and licked his sores.
[22] The beggar died, and he was carried away by the angels to Abraham’s bosom. The rich man also died and was buried.
[23] In Hades,§ he lifted up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far off, and Lazarus at his bosom.
[24] 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 in anguish in this flame.’
[25] “But Abraham said, ‘Son, remember that you, in your lifetime, received your good things, and Lazarus, in the same way, bad things. But here he is now comforted and you are in anguish.
[26] Besides all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed, that those who want to pass from here to you are not able, and that no one may cross over from there to us.’
[27] “He said, ‘I ask you therefore, father, that you would send him to my father’s house—
[28] for I have five brothers—that he may testify to them, so they won’t also come into this place of torment.’
[29] “But Abraham said to him, ‘They have Moses and the prophets. Let them listen to them.’
[30] “He said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.’
[31] “He said to him, ‘If they don’t listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if one rises from the dead.’ ”

Luke 16 (KJVS)

[1] And G1161 he said G3004 (ImpfActInd) also G2532 unto G4314 his G846 disciples G3101, There was G2258 (ImpfInd) a certain G5100 rich G4145 man G444, which G3739 had G2192 (ImpfActInd) a steward G3623; and G2532 the same G3778 was accused G1225 (AorPasInd) unto him G846 that G5613 he had wasted G1287 (PresActPtc) his G846 goods G5224 (PresActPtc).
[2] And G2532 he called G5455 (AorActPtc) him G846, and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, How G5101 is it that I hear G191 (PresActInd) this G5124 of G4012 thee G4675? give G591 (Aor2ActImpr) an account G3056 of thy G4675 stewardship G3622; for G1063 thou mayest be G1410 (FutMidDepInd) no G3756 longer G2089 steward G3621 (PresActInf).
[3] Then G1161 the steward G3623 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) within G1722 himself G1438, What G5101 shall I do G4160 (AorActSubj)? for G3754 my G3450 lord G2962 taketh away G851 (PresMidInd) from G575 me G1700 the stewardship G3622: I cannot G3756 G2480 (PresActInd) dig G4626 (PresActInf); to beg G1871 (PresActInf) I am ashamed G153 (PresMidPasInd).
[4] I am resolved G1097 (Aor2ActInd) what G5101 to do G4160 (FutActInd), that G2443, when G3752 I am put out G3179 (AorPasSubj) of the stewardship G3622, they may receive G1209 (AorMidDepSubj) me G3165 into G1519 their G846 houses G3624.
[5] So G2532 he called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) every G1538 one G1520 of his G1438 lord’s G2962 debtors G5533 [unto him], and said G3004 (ImpfActInd) unto the first G4413, How much G4214 owest thou G3784 (PresActInd) unto my G3450 lord G2962?
[6] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), An hundred G1540 measures G943 of oil G1637. And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Take G1209 (AorMidDepImpr) thy G4675 bill G1121, and G2532 sit down G2523 (AorActPtc) quickly G5030, and write G1125 (AorActImpr) fifty G4004.
[7] Then G1899 said he G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to another G2087, And G1161 how much G4214 owest G3784 (PresActInd) thou G4771? And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), An hundred G1540 measures G2884 of wheat G4621. And G2532 he said G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, Take G1209 (AorMidDepImpr) thy G4675 bill G1121, and G2532 write G1125 (AorActImpr) fourscore G3589.
[8] And G2532 the lord G2962 commended G1867 (AorActInd) the unjust G93 steward G3623, because G3754 he had done G4160 (AorActInd) wisely G5430: for G3754 the children G5207 of this G5127 world G165 are G1526 (PresInd) in G1519 their G1438 generation G1074 wiser G5429 than G5228 the children G5207 of light G5457.
[9] And I G2504 say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, Make G4160 (AorActImpr) to yourselves G1438 friends G5384 of G1537 the mammon G3126 of unrighteousness G93; that G2443, when G3752 ye fail G1587 (Aor2ActSubj), they may receive G1209 (AorMidDepSubj) you G5209 into G1519 everlasting G166 habitations G4633.
[10] He that is faithful G4103 in G1722 that which is least G1646 is G2076 (PresInd) faithful G4103 also G2532 in G1722 much G4183: and G2532 he that is unjust G94 in G1722 the least G1646 is G2076 (PresInd) unjust G94 also G2532 in G1722 much G4183.
[11] If G1487 therefore G3767 ye have G1096 not G3756 been G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) faithful G4103 in G1722 the unrighteous G94 mammon G3126, who G5101 will commit G4100 to your G5213 trust G4100 (FutActInd) the true G228 [riches]?
[12] And G2532 if G1487 ye have G1096 not G3756 been G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) faithful G4103 in G1722 that which is another man’s G245, who G5101 shall give G1325 (FutActInd) you G5213 that which is your own G5212?
[13] No G3762 servant G3610 can G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) serve G1398 (PresActInf) two G1417 masters G2962: for G1063 either G2228 he will hate G3404 (FutActInd) the one G1520, and G2532 love G25 (FutActInd) the other G2087; or else G2228 he will hold G472 (FutMidDepInd) to the one G1520, and G2532 despise G2706 (FutActInd) the other G2087. Ye cannot G3756 G1410 (PresMidPasDepInd) serve G1398 (PresActInf) God G2316 and G2532 mammon G3126.
[14] And G1161 the Pharisees G5330 also G2532, who were G5225 (PresActPtc) covetous G5366, heard G191 (ImpfActInd) all G3956 these things G5023: and G2532 they derided G1592 (ImpfActInd) him G846.
[15] And G2532 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846, Ye G5210 are G2075 (PresInd) they which justify G1344 (PresActPtc) yourselves G1438 before G1799 men G444; but G1161 God G2316 knoweth G1097 (PresActInd) your G5216 hearts G2588: for G3754 that which is highly esteemed G5308 among G1722 men G444 is G2076 (PresInd) abomination G946 in the sight G1799 of God G2316.
[16] The law G3551 and G2532 the prophets G4396 [were] until G2193 John G2491: since G575 that time G5119 the kingdom G932 of God G2316 is preached G2097 (PresPasInd), and G2532 every man G3956 presseth G971 (PresMidInd) into G1519 it G846.
[17] And G1161 it is G2076 (PresInd) easier G2123 for heaven G3772 and G2532 earth G1093 to pass G3928 (Aor2ActInf), than G2228 one G3391 tittle G2762 of the law G3551 to fail G4098 (Aor2ActInf).
[18] Whosoever G3956 putteth away G630 (PresActPtc) his G846 wife G1135, and G2532 marrieth G1060 (PresActPtc) another G2087, committeth adultery G3431 (PresActInd): and G2532 whosoever G3956 marrieth G1060 (PresActPtc) her that is put away G630 (PerfPasPtc) from G575 [her] husband G435 committeth adultery G3431 (PresActInd).
[19] G1161 There was G2258 (ImpfInd) a certain G5100 rich G4145 man G444, which G2532 was clothed G1737 (ImpfMidInd) in purple G4209 and G2532 fine linen G1040, and fared G2165 (PresPasPtc) sumptuously G2988 every G2596 day G2250:
[20] And G1161 there was G2258 (ImpfInd) a certain G5100 beggar G4434 named G3686 Lazarus G2976, which G3739 was laid G906 (PlupfPasInd) at G4314 his G846 gate G4440, full of sores G1669 (PerfPasPtc),
[21] And G2532 desiring G1937 (PresActPtc) to be fed G5526 (AorPasInf) with G575 the crumbs G5589 which G3588 fell G4098 (PresActPtc) from G575 the rich man’s G4145 table G5132: moreover G235 G2532 the dogs G2965 came G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) and licked G621 (ImpfActInd) his G846 sores G1668.
[22] And G1161 it came to pass G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd), that the beggar G4434 died G599 (Aor2ActInf), and G2532 was carried G667 (AorPasInf) by G5259 the angels G32 into G1519 Abraham’s G11 bosom G2859: the rich man G4145 also G1161 G2532 died G599 (Aor2ActInd), and G2532 was buried G2290 (Aor2PasDepSubj);
[23] And G2532 in G1722 hell G86 he lift up G1869 (AorActPtc) his G846 eyes G3788, being G5225 (PresActPtc) in G1722 torments G931, and seeth G3708 (PresActInd) Abraham G11 afar G3113 off G575, and G2532 Lazarus G2976 in G1722 his G846 bosom G2859.
[24] And G2532 G846 he cried G5455 (AorActPtc) and said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Father G3962 Abraham G11, have mercy G1653 (AorActImpr) on me G3165, and G2532 send G3992 (AorActImpr) Lazarus G2976, that G2443 he may dip G911 (AorActSubj) the tip G206 of his G846 finger G1147 in water G5204, and G2532 cool G2711 (AorActSubj) my G3450 tongue G1100; for G3754 I am tormented G3600 (PresPasInd) in G1722 this G5026 flame G5395.
[25] But G1161 Abraham G11 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Son G5043, remember G3415 (AorPasImpr) that G3754 thou G4771 in G1722 thy G4675 lifetime G2222 receivedst G618 (Aor2ActInd) thy G4675 good things G18, and G2532 likewise G3668 Lazarus G2976 evil things G2556: but G1161 now G3568 G3592 he is comforted G3870 (PresPasInd), and G1161 thou G4771 art tormented G3600 (PresPasInd).
[26] And G2532 beside G1909 all G3956 this G5125, between G3342 us G2257 and G2532 you G5216 there is G4741 a great G3173 gulf G5490 fixed G4741 (PerfPasInd): so that G3704 they which would G2309 (PresActPtc) pass G1224 (Aor2ActInf) from hence G1782 to G4314 you G5209 cannot G3361 G1410 (PresMidPasDepSubj); neither G3366 can they pass G1276 (PresActSubj) to G4314 us G2248, that [would come] from thence G1564.
[27] Then G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), I pray G2065 (PresActInd) thee G4571 therefore G3767, father G3962, that G2443 thou wouldest send G3992 (AorActSubj) him G846 to G1519 my G3450 father’s G3962 house G3624:
[28] For G1063 I have G2192 (PresActInd) five G4002 brethren G80; that G3704 he may testify G1263 (PresMidPasDepSubj) unto them G846, lest G3363 they G846 also G2532 come G2064 (Aor2ActSubj) into G1519 this G5126 place G5117 of torment G931.
[29] Abraham G11 saith G3004 (PresActInd) unto him G846, They have G2192 (PresActInd) Moses G3475 and G2532 the prophets G4396; let them hear G191 (AorActImpr) them G846.
[30] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), Nay G3780, father G3962 Abraham G11: but G235 if G1437 one G5100 went G4198 (AorPasDepSubj) unto G4314 them G846 from G575 the dead G3498, they will repent G3340 (FutActInd).
[31] And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, If G1487 they hear G191 (PresActInd) not G3756 Moses G3475 and G2532 the prophets G4396, neither G3761 will they be persuaded G3982 (FutPasInd), though G1437 one G5100 rose G450 (Aor2ActSubj) from G1537 the dead G3498.

Young’s Literal Translation

Luke 16 (YLT)

[1] And he said also unto his disciples, ‘A certain man was rich, who had a steward, and he was accused to him as scattering his goods;
[2] and having called him, he said to him, What is this I hear about thee? render the account of thy stewardship, for thou mayest not any longer be steward.
[3] ‘And the steward said in himself, What shall I do, because my lord doth take away the stewardship from me? to dig I am not able, to beg I am ashamed:-
[4] I have known what I shall do, that, when I may be removed from the stewardship, they may receive me to their houses.
[5] ‘And having called near each one of his lord’s debtors, he said to the first, How much dost thou owe to my lord?
[6] and he said, A hundred baths of oil; and he said to him, Take thy bill, and having sat down write fifty.
[7] ‘Afterward to another he said, And thou, how much dost thou owe? and he said, A hundred cors of wheat; and he saith to him, Take thy bill, and write eighty.
[8] ‘And the lord commended the unrighteous steward that he did prudently, because the sons of this age are more prudent than the sons of the light, in respect to their generation.
[9] and I say to you, Make to yourselves friends out of the mammon of unrighteousness, that when ye may fail, they may receive you to the age-during tabernacles.
[10] ‘He who is faithful in the least, is also faithful in much; and he who in the least is unrighteous, is also unrighteous in much;
[11] if, then, in the unrighteous mammon ye became not faithful-the true who will entrust to you?
[12] and if in the other’s ye became not faithful-your own, who shall give to you?
[13] ‘No domestic is able to serve two lords, for either the one he will hate, and the other he will love; or one he will hold to, and of the other he will be heedless; ye are not able to serve God and mammon.’
[14] And also the Pharisees, being lovers of money, were hearing all these things, and were deriding him,
[15] and he said to them, ‘Ye are those declaring yourselves righteous before men, but God doth know your hearts; because that which among men is high, is abomination before God;
[16] the law and the prophets are till John; since then the reign of God is proclaimed good news, and every one doth press into it;
[17] and it is easier to the heaven and the earth to pass away, than of the law one tittle to fall.
[18] ‘Every one who is sending away his wife, and marrying another, doth commit adultery; and every one who is marrying her sent away from a husband doth commit adultery.
[19] ‘And-a certain man was rich, and was clothed in purple and fine linen, making merry sumptuously every day,
[20] and there was a certain poor man, by name Lazarus, who was laid at his porch, full of sores,
[21] and desiring to be filled from the crumbs that are falling from the table of the rich man; yea, also the dogs, coming, were licking his sores.
[22] ‘And it came to pass, that the poor man died, and that he was carried away by the messengers to the bosom of Abraham-and the rich man also died, and was buried;
[23] and in the hades having lifted up his eyes, being in torments, he doth see Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom,
[24] and having cried, he said, Father Abraham, deal kindly with me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and may cool my tongue, because I am distressed in this flame.
[25] ‘And Abraham said, Child, remember that thou did receive-thou-thy good things in thy life, and Lazarus in like manner the evil things, and now he is comforted, and thou art distressed;
[26] and besides all these things, between us and you a great chasm is fixed, so that they who are willing to go over from hence unto you are not able, nor do they from thence to us pass through.
[27] ‘And he said, I pray thee, then, father, that thou mayest send him to the house of my father,
[28] for I have five brothers, so that he may thoroughly testify to them, that they also may not come to this place of torment.
[29] ‘Abraham saith to him, They have Moses and the prophets, let them hear them;
[30] and he said, No, father Abraham, but if any one from the dead may go unto them, they will reform.
[31] And he said to him, If Moses and the prophets they do not hear, neither if one may rise out of the dead will they be persuaded.’
