    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:2

    Y le llam, y le dijo: ¿Qu es esto que oigo de ti? Da cuenta de tu mayordomía, porque ya no podrs ms ser mayordomo.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 16:2

    Verse 2. Give an account of thy, &c.] Produce thy books of receipts and disbursements, that I may see whether the
    accusation against thee be true or false. The original may be translated, Give up the business, ton logon, of the stewardship.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 2. And he called him , etc.] By the
    prophets, sent one after another; by John the Baptist, by Christ himself, and by his apostles: and said unto him, how is it that I hear this of thee ? of thy corrupting the word; of thy covetousness, rapine, and theft; of thy adultery and idolatry, and sad violation of the law; (see Romans 2:21-23) give an account of thy stewardship : what improvement is made of thy gifts; what care has been taken of my vineyard, the Jewish church; and where are the fruits that might be expected to have been received at your hands: for thou mayest be no longer steward . This was foretold by the prophets, that God would write a Loammi upon the people of the Jews; that he would cut off three shepherds in one month, and particularly lay aside the idol shepherd, by whom the Pharisees may be meant, ( Zechariah 11:8,17) and by John the Baptist, who declared the axe was laid to the root of the tree, and it was just ready to be cut down, ( Matthew 3:10,12) and by Christ, that the kingdom of God should be taken from them, ( Matthew 21:43) and by the apostles, who turned from them to the Gentiles, ( Acts 13:46).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-12 - Whatever we have, the
    property of it is God's; we have only the use of it, according to the direction of our great Lord, and for his honour This steward wasted his lord's goods. And we are all liable to the sam charge; we have not made due improvement of what God has trusted u with. The steward cannot deny it; he must make up his accounts, and by gone. This may teach us that death will come, and deprive us of the opportunities we now have. The steward will make friends of his lord' debtors or tenants, by striking off a considerable part of their deb to his lord. The lord referred to in this parable commended not the fraud, but the policy of the steward. In that respect alone is it s noticed. Worldly men, in the choice of their object, are foolish; but in their activity, and perseverance, they are often wiser tha believers. The unjust steward is not set before us as an example i cheating his master, or to justify any dishonesty, but to point out the careful ways of worldly men. It would be well if the children of ligh would learn wisdom from the men of the world, and would as earnestl pursue their better object. The true riches signify spiritual blessings; and if a man spends upon himself, or hoards up what God ha trusted to him, as to outward things, what evidence can he have, tha he is an heir of God through Christ? The riches of this world ar deceitful and uncertain. Let us be convinced that those are truly rich and very rich, who are rich in faith, and rich toward God, rich in Christ, in the promises; let us then lay up our treasure in heaven, an expect our portion from thence.

    Deep scarlet or crimson - the Tyrian purple.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    16:2 {What is this that I hear?} (ti touto akouw;). There are several ways of understanding this terse
    Greek idiom. The Revised Version (above) takes ti to be equal to ti estin touto ho akouw; That is a possible use of the predicate touto. Another way is to take ti to be exclamatory, which is less likely. Still another view is that ti is " Why": "Why do I hear this about thee?" See #Ac 14:15 where that is the idiom employed. {Render} (apodos). Second aorist active imperative of apodidwmi, Give back (and at once). {The account} (ton logon). The reckoning or report. Common use of logos. {Stewardship} (oikonomias). Same root as oikonomos (steward). this demand does not necessarily mean dismissal if investigation proved him innocent of the charges. But the reason given implies that he is to be dismissed: {Thou canst no longer} (ou gar dunei).
