“And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:”
King James Version (KJV)
12:14 Who made me a judge? - In worldly things. His kingdom is not of this world.
12:15 He said to them - Perhaps to the two brothers, and through them to the people. A man's life - That is, the comfort or happiness of it.
12:17 What shall I do? - The very language of want! Do? Why, lay up treasure in heaven.
Lu 12:16-19 He spake a parable. To show that riches do not secure one from evil. A certain rich man. There is no intimation that his wealth was unjustly secured.
