- 1 Now all the tax R679 collectors and the sinners F347 were coming near Him to listen to Him. 2 Both the Pharisees and the scribes began to grumble, saying, "This man receives sinners and eats R680 with them." 3 So He told them this parable, saying, 4 "What R681 man among you, if he has a hundred sheep and has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open F348 pasture and go after the one which is lost until he finds it? 5 "When he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 "And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, `Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' 7 "I tell you that in the same way, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance. 8 "Or what woman, if she has ten silver F349 coins and loses one coin, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? 9 "When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, `Rejoice with me, for I have found the coin which I had lost!' 10 "In the same way, I tell you, there is joy in R682 the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
