Luke 15

15:1 Then drew near to him all the publicans and sinners to hear
15:2 And the Pharisees and scribes murmured, saying, This man
 receiveth sinners, and eateth with them.
15:3 And he spoke this parable to them, saying,
15:4 What man of you having a hundred sheep, if he loseth one of
 them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and
 go after that which is lost, until he findeth it?
15:5 And when he hath found [it], he layeth [it] on his
 shoulders, rejoicing.
15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together [his] friends
 and neighbors, saying to them, Rejoice with me; for I have
 found my sheep which was lost.
15:7 I say to you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one
 sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just
 persons, who need no repentance.
15:8 Either what woman having ten pieces of silver, if she
 loseth one piece, doth not light a candle, and sweep the house,
 and seek diligently till she findeth [it]?
15:9 And when she hath found [it], she calleth [her] friends and
 [her] neighbors together, saying, Rejoice with me; for I have
 found the piece which I had lost.
15:10 Likewise, I say to you, There is joy in the presence of
 the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.
15:11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
15:12 And the younger of them said to [his] father, Father, give
 me the portion of goods that falleth [to me]. And he divided to
 them [his] living.
15:13 And not many days after, the younger son gathered all
 together, and took his journey into a far country, and there
 wasted his substance with riotous living.
15:14 And when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in
 that land; and he began to be in want.
15:15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that
 country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks
 that the swine did eat; and no man gave to him.
15:17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired
 servants of my father have bread enough and to spare, and I am
 perishing with hunger!
15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him,
 Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
15:19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one
 of thy hired servants.
15:20 And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet
 a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and
 ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
15:21 And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against
 heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called
 thy son.
15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best
 robe, and put [it] on him, and put a ring on his hand, and
 shoes on [his] feet:
15:23 And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill [it]; and let
 us eat, and be merry:
15:24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost,
 and is found. And they began to be merry.
15:25 Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and
 drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.
15:26 And he called one of the servants, and asked what these
 things meant.
15:27 And he said to him, Thy brother is come; and thy father
 hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him in
15:28 And he was angry, and would not go in; therefore his
 father came out, and entreated him.
15:29 And he answering, said to [his] father, Lo, these many
 years do I serve thee, neither have I at any time transgressed
 thy commandment; and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I
 might make merry with my friends:
15:30 But as soon as this thy son had come, who hath devoured
 thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted
15:31 And he said to him, Son, thou art ever with me: and all
 that I have is thine.
15:32 It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for
 this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost,
 and is found.
