Luke 16:13 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 No servant can serve two masters.[a] He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.”

Footnotes:

  1. 16:13 The third conclusion is a general statement about the incompatibility of serving God and being a slave to riches. To be dependent upon wealth is opposed to the teachings of Jesus who counseled complete dependence on the Father as one of the characteristics of the Christian disciple (Lk 12:22–39). God and mammon: see note on Lk 16:9. Mammon is used here as if it were itself a god.
