ThenG1161 drew nearG1448 to him allG3956 the publicansG5057 and sinnersG268 for to hearG191 him.
And the PhariseesG5330 and scribesG1122 murmured,G1234 saying,G3004 ThisG3778 man receivesG4327 sinners,G268 and eatsG4906 with them.
And he spokeG2036 thisG5026 parableG3850 to them, saying,G3004
WhatG5101 manG444 of you, havingG2192 an hundredG1540 sheep,G4263 if he loseG622 oneG1520 of them, does not leaveG2641 the ninetyG1768 and nineG1768 in the wilderness,G2048 and goG4198 afterG1909 that which is lost,G622 untilG2193 he findG2147 it?
And when he has foundG2147 it, he laysG2007 it onG1909 his shoulders,G5606 rejoicing.G5463
And when he comesG2064 home,G3624 he callsG4779 togetherG4779 his friendsG5384 and neighbors,G1069 sayingG3004 to them, RejoiceG4796 with me; for I have foundG2147 my sheepG4263 whichG3588 was lost.G622
I sayG3004 to you, that likewiseG3779 joyG5479 shall be in heavenG3772 overG1909 oneG1520 sinnerG268 that repents,G3340 more thanG2228 overG1909 ninetyG1768 and nineG1768 justG1342 persons, whichG3748 needG2192 G5532 noG3756 repentance.G3341
EitherG2228 whatG5101 womanG1135 havingG2192 tenG1176 piecesG1406 of silver,G1406 ifG1437 she loseG622 oneG3391 piece,G1406 does not lightG681 a candle,G3088 and sweepG4563 the house,G3614 and seekG2212 diligentlyG1960 tillG2193 she findG2147 it?
And when she has foundG2147 it, she callsG4779 her friendsG5384 and her neighborsG1069 together,G4779 saying,G3004 RejoiceG4796 with me; for I have foundG2147 the pieceG1406 whichG3739 I had lost.G622
Likewise,G3779 I sayG3004 to you, there is joyG5479 in the presenceG1799 of the angelsG32 of GodG2316 overG1909 oneG1520 sinnerG268 that repents.G3340
And he said,G2036 A certainG5100 manG444 hadG2192 twoG1417 sons:G5207
And the youngerG3501 of them saidG2036 to his father,G3962 Father,G3962 giveG1325 me the portionG3313 of goodsG3776 that fallsG1911 to me. And he dividedG1244 to them his living.G979
And not manyG4183 daysG2250 afterG3326 the youngerG3501 sonG5207 gatheredG4863 allG537 together,G4863 and tookG589 his journeyG589 intoG1519 a farG3117 country,G5561 and thereG1563 wastedG1287 his substanceG3776 with riotousG811 living.G2198
And when he had spentG1159 all,G3956 there aroseG1096 a mightyG2478 famineG3042 in that land;G5561 and he beganG756 to be in want.G5302
And he wentG4198 and joinedG2853 himselfG1438 to a citizenG4177 of that country;G5561 and he sentG3992 him intoG1519 his fieldsG68 to feedG1006 swine.G5519
And he would fainG1937 have filledG1072 his bellyG2836 with the husksG2769 that the swineG5519 did eat:G2068 and noG3762 manG3762 gaveG1325 to him.
And when he cameG2064 to himself,G1438 he said,G2036 HowG4214 manyG4214 hiredG3407 servantsG3407 of my father'sG3962 have breadG740 enoughG4052 and to spare,G4052 and I perishG622 with hunger!G3042
I will ariseG450 and goG4198 to my father,G3962 and will sayG2046 to him, Father,G3962 I have sinnedG264 againstG1519 heaven,G3772 and beforeG1799 you,
And amG1510 noG3765 moreG3765 worthyG514 to be calledG2564 your son:G5207 makeG4160 me as oneG1520 of your hiredG3407 servants.G3407
And he arose,G450 and cameG2064 to his father.G3962 But when he was yetG2089 a greatG3112 wayG3112 off,G568 his fatherG3962 sawG1492 him, and had compassion,G4697 and ran,G5143 and fellG1968 onG1909 his neck,G5137 and kissedG2705 him.
And the sonG5207 saidG2036 to him, Father,G3962 I have sinnedG264 againstG1519 heaven,G3772 and in your sight,G1799 and amG1510 noG3765 moreG3765 worthyG514 to be calledG2564 your son.G5207
But the fatherG3962 saidG2036 to his servants,G1401 BringG1627 forthG1627 the bestG4413 robe,G4749 and putG1746 it onG1746 him; and putG1325 a ringG1146 onG1519 his hand,G5495 and shoesG5266 onG1519 his feet:G4228
And bringG5342 hereG5602 the fattedG4618 calf,G3448 and killG2380 it; and let us eat,G5315 and be merry:G2165
For thisG3778 my sonG5207 was dead,G3498 and is aliveG326 again;G326 he was lost,G622 and is found.G2147 And they beganG756 to be merry.G2165
NowG1161 his elderG4245 sonG5207 was in the field:G68 and as he cameG2064 and drew nearG1448 to the house,G3614 he heardG191 musicG4858 and dancing.G5525
And he calledG4341 oneG1520 of the servants,G3816 and askedG4441 whatG5101 theseG5023 things meant.G1498
And he saidG2036 to him, Your brotherG80 is come;G2240 and your fatherG3962 has killedG2380 the fattedG4618 calf,G3448 becauseG3754 he has receivedG618 him safeG5198 and sound.G5198
And he was angry,G3710 and wouldG2309 not goG1525 in: thereforeG3767 cameG1831 his fatherG3962 out, and entreatedG3870 him.
And he answeringG611 saidG2036 to his father,G3962 See,G2400 theseG5118 manyG5118 yearsG2094 do I serveG1398 you, neitherG3763 transgressedG3928 I atG3763 anyG3763 time your commandment:G1785 and yet you neverG3763 gaveG1325 me a kid,G2056 that I might makeG2165 merryG2165 with my friends:G5384
But as soonG3753 as thisG3778 your sonG5207 was come,G2064 whichG3588 has devouredG2719 your livingG979 with harlots,G4204 you have killedG2380 for him the fattedG4618 calf.G3448
And he saidG2036 to him, Son,G5043 you areG1488 everG3842 with me, and allG3956 that I haveG1699 is yours.G4674
It was meetG1163 that we should makeG2165 merry,G2165 and be glad:G5463 for thisG3778 your brotherG80 was dead,G3498 and is aliveG326 again;G326 and was lost,G622 and is found.G2147
