    VERSE (6) -
    :9,12 Tit 2:10

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 16:6

    Y l dijo: Cien batos de aceite. Y le dijo: Toma tu obligacin, y sintate presto, y escribe cincuenta.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Luke 16:6

    Verse 6. A
    hundred measures of oil.] ekaton batouv, A hundred baths. The hb bath was the largest measure of capacity among the Hebrews, except the homer, of which it was the tenth part: see Ezek. xlv. 11, 14. It is equal to the ephah, i.e. to seven gallons and a half of our measure.

    Take thy bill] Thy account-to gramma. The writing in which the debt was specified, together with the obligation to pay so much, at such and such times. This appears to have been in the hand-writing of the debtor, and probably signed by the steward: and this precluded imposition on each part. To prevent all appearance of forgery in this case, he is desired to write it over again, and to cancel the old engagement. In carrying on a running account with a tradesman, it is common among the Hindoos for the buyer to receive from the hands of the seller a daily account of the things received; and according to this account, written on a slip of paper, and which remains in the hands of the buyer, the person is paid.


    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.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    16:6 {Measures} (batous). Transliterated word for Hebrew _bath_, between eight and nine gallons. Here alone in the N.T. Not the same word as batos ({
    bush}) in #Lu 6:44. {Thy bond} (sou ta grammata). Thy writings, thy contracts, thy note. {Quickly} (tacews). It was a secret arrangement and speed was essential.
