- 11 And he said (5627), A certain man had (5707) two sons: 12 And the younger of them said (5627) to his father, Father, give (5628) me the portion of goods that falleth (5723) to me. And he divided (5627) unto them his living. 13 And not many days after the younger son gathered all together (5631), and took his journey (5656) into a far country, and there wasted (5656) his substance with riotous living (5723). 14 And when he had spent (5660) all, there arose (5633) a mighty famine in that land; and he began (5662) to be in want (5745). 15 And he went (5679) and joined himself (5681) to a citizen of that country; and he sent (5656) him into his fields to feed (5721) swine. 16 And he would fain (5707) have filled (5658) his belly with the husks that the swine did eat (5707): and no man gave (5707) unto him. 17 And when he came (5631) to himself, he said (5627), How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare (5719), and I perish (5731) with hunger! 18 I will arise (5631) and go (5695) to my father, and will say (5692) unto him, Father, I have sinned (5627) against heaven, and before thee, 19 And am (5748) no more worthy to be called (5683) thy son: make (5657) me as one of thy hired servants. 20 And he arose (5631), and came (5627) to his father. But when he was yet a great way off (5723), his father saw (5627) him, and had compassion (5675), and ran (5631), and fell (5627) on his neck, and kissed (5656) him. 21 And the son said (5627) unto him, Father, I have sinned (5627) against heaven, and in thy sight, and am (5748) no more worthy to be called (5683) thy son. 22 But the father said (5627) to his servants, Bring forth (5657) the best robe, and put it on (5657) him; and put (5628) a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet: 23 And bring hither (5660) the fatted calf, and kill (5657) it; and let us eat (5631), and be merry (5686): 24 For this my son was (5713) dead, and is alive again * (5656); he was (5713) lost (5756), and is found (5681). And they began (5662) to be merry (5745). 25 Now his elder son was (5713) in the field: and as he came (5740) and drew nigh (5656) to the house, he heard (5656) musick and dancing. 26 And he called (5666) one of the servants, and asked (5711) what these things meant (5751). 27 And he said (5627) unto him *, Thy brother is come (5719); and thy father hath killed (5656) the fatted calf, because he hath received (5627) him safe and sound (5723). 28 And he was angry (5681), and would (5707) not go in (5629): therefore came his father out (5631), and intreated (5707) him. 29 And he answering (5679) said (5627) to his father, Lo (5628), these many years do I serve (5719) thee, neither transgressed I (5627) at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest (5656) me a kid, that I might make merry (5686) with my friends: 30 But as soon as this thy son was come (5627), which hath devoured (5631) thy living with harlots, thou hast killed (5656) for him the fatted calf. 31 And he said (5627) unto him, Son, thou art (5748) ever with me, and all that I have is (5748) thine. 32 It was meet (5713) that we should make merry (5683), and be glad (5646): for this thy brother was (5713) dead, and is alive again (5656); and was (5713) lost (5756), and is found (5681).
