Luke 16:7-9 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Then he said to another, ‘And how much do you owe?’ And he said, ‘A hundred [a]measures of wheat.’ He *said to him, ‘Take your bill, and write eighty.’ And his [b]master praised the unrighteous manager because he had acted shrewdly; for the sons of this age are more shrewd in relation to their own [c]kind than the sons of light. And I say to you, make friends for yourselves by means of the [d]wealth of unrighteousness, so that when it fails, they will receive you into the eternal dwellings.

Luke 16:7-9 New International Version (NIV)

“Then he asked the second, ‘And how much do you owe?’

“‘A thousand bushels[a] of wheat,’ he replied.

“He told him, ‘Take your bill and make it eight hundred.’

“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the people of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own kind than are the people of the light. I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.
