Luke 16:9New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

I tell you, make friends for yourselves with dishonest wealth,[a] so that when it fails, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings.

Footnotes:

  1. 16:9 Dishonest wealth: literally, “mammon of iniquity.” Mammon is the Greek transliteration of a Hebrew or Aramaic word that is usually explained as meaning “that in which one trusts.” The characterization of this wealth as dishonest expresses a tendency of wealth to lead one to dishonesty. Eternal dwellings: or, “eternal tents,” i.e., heaven.
