“Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.”
King James Version (KJV)
16:3 To beg I am ashamed - But not ashamed to cheat! This was likewise a sense of honour! By men called honour, but by angels pride.
Lu 16:3 I cannot dig. He was not accustomed to, or willing to come to, hard labor. To beg I am ashamed. He ought to have been more ashamed to prove faithless to his trust.
