THE LOST SON

 

Luke 15:11-24

11 And he said, A certain man had two sons: 12 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. 13

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. 14 And when he had spent all,

there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in

want. 15 And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that

country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he

would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did

eat: and no man gave unto him. 17 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! 18 I will arise and go to my

father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against

heaven, and before thee, 19 And am no more worthy to be called

thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants. 20 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. 21 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. 22 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: 23 And bring hither the fatted

calf, and kill [it]; and let us eat, and be merry: 24 For this my

son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And

they began to be merry.__
