Luke 16 ©
The parable of the unjust steward. Christ reproveth the hypocrisy of the Pharisees, who were covetous, and derided him. The parable of the rich man and Lazarus the beggar.
So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
¶qNo 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. rYe cannot serve God and *mammon.
And he said unto them, Ye are they which ujustify yourselves before men; but vGod knoweth your hearts: wfor that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
And he cried and said, mFather Abraham, nhave mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that ohe may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I pam tormented in this flame.
Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
For I have five brethren; that he may ttestify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
