1 G1161 Now G3956 all G5057 the publicans G2532 and G268 sinners G2258 were drawing G1448 near G846 unto him G191 to hear G846 him.
2 G2532 And G5330 both the Pharisees G2532 and G1122 the scribes G1234 murmured, G3754 saying, G3778 This man G4327 receiveth G268 sinners, G2532 and G4906 eateth G846 with them.
4 G5101 What G444 man G1537 of G5216 you, G2192 having G1540 a hundred G4263 sheep, G2532 and G622 having lost G1520 one G1537 of G846 them, G2641 doth G3756 not G2641 leave G1768 the ninety and nine G1722 in G2048 the wilderness, G2532 and G4198 go G1909 after G3588 that which G622 is lost, G2193 until G2147 he find G846 it?
5 G2532 And G2147 when he hath found G2007 it, he layeth G1909 it on G1438 his G5606 shoulders, G5463 rejoicing.
6 G2532 And G2064 when he cometh G1519 G3624 home, G4779 he calleth together G5384 his friends G2532 and G1069 his neighbors, G3004 saying G846 unto them, G4796 Rejoice with G3427 me, G3754 for G2147 I have found G3450 my G4263 sheep G3588 which G622 was lost.
7 G3004 I say G5213 unto you, G3754 that G3779 even so G2071 there shall be G5479 joy G1722 in G3772 heaven G1909 over G1520 one G268 sinner G3340 that repenteth, G2228 more than G1909 over G1768 ninety and nine G1342 righteous persons, G3748 who G2192 G5532 need G3756 no G3341 repentance.
8 G2228 Or G5101 what G1135 woman G2192 having G1176 ten G1406 pieces of silver, G1437 if G622 she lose G1520 one G1406 piece, G681 doth G3780 not G681 light G3088 a lamp, G2532 and G4563 sweep G3614 the house, G2532 and G2212 seek G1960 diligently G2193 until G3755 G2147 she find it?
9 G2532 And G2147 when she hath found G4779 it, she calleth G4779 together G5384 her friends G2532 and G1069 neighbors, G3004 saying, G4796 Rejoice with G3427 me, G3754 for G2147 I have found G1406 the piece G3739 which G622 I had lost.
10 G3779 Even so, G3004 I say G5213 unto you, G1096 there is G5479 joy G1799 in the presence of G32 the angels G2316 of God G1909 over G1520 one G268 sinner G3340 that repenteth.
12 G2532 and G3501 the younger G846 of them G2036 said G3962 to G3962 his father, G3962 Father, G1325 give G3427 me G3313 the portion G3776 of thy substance G1911 that falleth G2532 to me. And G1244 he divided G846 unto them G979 his living.
13 G2532 And G3756 not G4183 many G2250 days G3326 after, G3501 the younger G5207 son G4863 gathered G537 all G4863 together G589 and took his journey G1519 into G3117 a far G5561 country; G2532 and G1563 there G1287 he wasted G846 his G3776 substance G811 with riotous G2198 living.
14 G1161 And G846 when he G1159 had spent G3956 all, G1096 there arose G2478 a mighty G3042 famine G2596 in G1565 that G5561 country; G2532 and G846 he G756 began G5302 to be in want.
15 G2532 And G4198 he went G2853 and joined himself G1520 to G4177 one of the citizens G1565 of that G5561 country; G2532 and G3992 he sent G846 him G1519 into G846 his G68 fields G1006 to feed G5519 swine.
16 G2532 And G1937 he would fain G1072 have filled G846 his G2836 belly G575 with G2769 the husks G3739 that G5519 the swine G2068 did eat: G2532 and G3762 no man G1325 gave G846 unto him.
17 G2064 But when he came G1519 to G1438 himself G2036 he said, G4214 How many G3407 hired servants G3450 of my G3962 father's G740 have bread G1161 enough and G4052 to spare, G1161 and G1473 I G622 perish G3042 here with hunger!
18 G450 I will arise G4198 and go G4314 to G3450 my G3962 father, G2532 and G2046 will say G846 unto him, G3962 Father, G264 I have sinned G1519 against G3772 heaven, G2532 and G4675 in thy G1799 sight:
19 G2532 I G1510 am G3765 no more G514 worthy G2564 to be called G4675 your G5207 son: G4160 make G3165 me G5613 as G1520 one G4675 of thy G3407 hired servants.
20 G2532 And G450 he arose, G2064 and came G4314 to G1438 his G3962 father. G1161 But G846 while he G568 was G2089 yet G3112 afar off, G846 his G3962 father G1492 saw G846 him, G2532 and G4697 was moved with compassion, G2532 and G5143 ran, G1968 and fell G1909 on G846 his G5137 neck, G2532 and G2705 kissed G846 him.
21 G1161 And G5207 the son G2036 said G846 unto him, G3962 Father, G264 I have sinned G1519 against G3772 heaven, G2532 and G1799 in G4675 thy G1799 sight: G2532 I G1510 am G3765 no more G514 worthy G2564 to be called G4675 thy G5207 son.
22 G1161 But G3962 the father G2036 said G4314 to G846 his G1401 servants, G1627 Bring forth G4413 quickly the best G4749 robe, G2532 and G1746 put G1746 it on G846 him; G2532 and G1325 put G1146 a ring G1519 on G846 his G5495 hand, G2532 and G5266 shoes G1519 on G4228 his feet:
23 G2532 and G5342 bring G4618 the fatted G3448 calf, G2380 and kill G2532 it, and G5315 let us eat, G2165 and make merry:
24 G3778 for G3778 this G3450 my G5207 son G2258 was G3498 dead, G2532 and G2532 is alive again; G2258 he was G622 lost, G2532 and G2147 is found. G2532 And G756 they began G2165 to be merry.
25 G1161 Now G846 his G4245 elder G5207 son G2258 was G1722 in G68 the field: G2532 and G5613 as G2064 he came G1448 and drew nigh G3614 to the house, G191 he heard G4858 music G2532 and G5525 dancing.
26 G2532 And G4341 he called G1520 to him one G3816 of the servants, G4441 and inquired G846 G5101 what G5023 these things G1498 might be.
27 G1161 And G2036 he said G3754 unto him, G4675 Thy G80 brother G2240 is come; G2532 and G4675 thy G3962 father G2380 hath killed G4618 the fatted G3448 calf, G3754 because G618 he hath received G846 him G5198 safe and sound.
28 G1161 But G3710 he was angry, G2532 and G2309 would G3756 not G1525 go in: G3767 and G846 his G3962 father G1831 came G1831 out, G3870 and entreated G846 him.
29 G1161 But G611 he answered G2036 and said G3962 to G3962 his father, G2400 Lo, G5118 these many G2094 years G1398 do I serve G4671 thee, G2532 and G3928 I G3763 never G1785 transgressed a commandment G4675 of thine; G2532 and G1325 yet thou G3763 never G1325 gavest G1698 me G2056 a kid, G2443 that G2165 I might make merry G3326 with G3450 my G5384 friends:
30 G1161 but G3753 when G3778 this G4675 thy G5207 son G2064 came, G3588 who G2719 hath devoured G4675 thy G979 living G3326 with G4204 harlots, G2380 thou killedst G846 for him G4618 the fatted G3448 calf.
31 G1161 And G2036 he said G846 unto him, G5043 Son, G4771 thou G1488 art G3842 ever G3326 with G1700 me, G2532 and G3956 all G1699 that is mine G2076 is G4674 thine.
