Luke 16:7-9 Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV)

Then he said to another, ‘How much do you owe?’ And he said, ‘Six hundred bushels[a] of wheat.’ He said to him, ‘Take your bill and write four hundred and eighty.’

“The master commended the dishonest manager because he had acted shrewdly. For the children[b] of this world are more shrewd in dealing with their own generation[c] than the children of the light are. I tell you, make friends for yourselves with unrighteous mammon,[d] so that when it runs out, they will welcome you into the eternal dwellings.
