Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:19 - I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me as one of your hired men.”’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:20 - “So he got up and came to [fn]his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and [fn]embraced him and kissed him.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:24 - for this son of mine was dead and has come to life again; he was lost and has been found.’ And they began to celebrate.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:25 - “Now his older son was in the field, and when he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:27 - “And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has received him back safe and sound.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:28 - “But he became angry and was not willing to go in; and his father came out and began pleading with him.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:30 - but when this son of yours came, who has devoured your [fn]wealth with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him.’

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:31 - “And he said to him, ‘Son, you [fn]have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours.
