15:3 And he spake unto them this parable, saying,
15:4 What man of you, having a hundred sheep, and having lost one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find 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 his neighbors, saying unto them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost.
15:9 And when she hath found it, she calleth together her friends and neighbors, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I had lost.
15:11 And he said, A certain man had two sons:
15:14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that country; and he began to be in want.
15:16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
15:17 But when he came to himself he said, How many hired servants of my father`s have bread enough and to spare, and I perish here with hunger!
15:18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight:
15:19 I am no more worthy to be called your son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
15:21 And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight: I am no more worthy to be called thy son.
15:23 and bring the fatted calf, [and] kill it, and let us eat, and make 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.
15:26 And he called to him one of the servants, and inquired what these things might be.
15:27 And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
15:28 But he was angry, and would not go in: and his father came out, and entreated him.
15:29 But he answered and said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, and I never transgressed a commandment of thine; and [yet] thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
15:31 And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that is mine is thine.
15:32 But it was meet to make merry and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive [again]; and [was] lost, and is found.
