042:015:001
Then drew near unto him all the publicans and sinners for to hear him.


042:015:002
And the Pharisees and scribes murmured,
saying,
This man receiveth sinners,
and eateth with them.


042:015:003
And he spake this parable unto them,
saying,


042:015:004
What man of you,
having an hundred sheep,
if he lose one of them,
doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness,
and go after that which is lost,
until he find it?


042:015:005
And when he hath found it,
he layeth it on his shoulders,
rejoicing.


042:015:006
And when he cometh home,
he calleth together his friends and neighbours,
saying unto them,
Rejoice with me;
for I have found my sheep which was lost.


042:015:007
I say unto you,
that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth,
more than over ninety and nine just persons,
which need no repentance.


042:015:008
Either what woman having ten pieces of silver,
if she lose one piece,
doth not light a candle,
and sweep the house,
and seek diligently till she find it?


042:015:009
And when she hath found it,
she calleth her friends and her neighbours together,
saying,
Rejoice with me;
for I have found the piece which I had lost.


042:015:010
Likewise,
I say unto you,
there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner that repenteth.


042:015:011
And he said,
A certain man had two sons:


042:015:012
And the younger of them said to his father,
Father,
give me the portion of goods that falleth to me.
And he divided unto them his living.


042:015:013
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.


042:015:014
And when he had spent all,
there arose a mighty famine in that land;
and he began to be in want.


042:015:015
And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country;
and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.


042:015:016
And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat:
and no man gave unto him.


042:015:017
And when he came to himself,
he said,
How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare,
and I perish with hunger!


042:015:018
I will arise and go to my father,
and will say unto him,
Father,
I have sinned against heaven,
and before thee,


042:015:019
And am no more worthy to be called thy son:
make me as one of thy hired servants.


042:015:020
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.


042:015:021
And the son said unto him,
Father,
I have sinned against heaven,
and in thy sight,
and am no more worthy to be called thy son.


042:015:022
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:


042:015:023
And bring hither the fatted calf,
and kill it;
and let us eat,
and be merry:


042:015:024
For this my son was dead,
and is alive again;
he was lost,
and is found.
And they began to be merry.


042:015:025
Now his elder son was in the field:
and as he came and drew nigh to the house,
he heard musick and dancing.


042:015:026
And he called one of the servants,
and asked what these things meant.


042:015:027
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.


042:015:028
And he was angry,
and would not go in:
therefore came his father out,
and intreated him.


042:015:029
And he answering said to his father,
Lo,
these many years do I serve thee,
neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment:
and yet thou never gavest me a kid,
that I might make merry with my friends:


042:015:030
But as soon as this thy son was come,
which hath devoured thy living with harlots,
thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.


042:015:031
And he said unto him,
Son,
thou art ever with me,
and all that I have is thine.


042:015:032
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.
