Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:19 - and no more am I worthy to be called thy son; make me as one of thy hirelings.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:20 - 'And having risen, he went unto his own father, and he being yet far distant, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and having ran he fell upon his neck and kissed him;

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:25 - 'And his elder son was in a field, and as, coming, he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:26 - and having called near one of the young men, he was inquiring what these things might be,

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:27 - and he said to him -- Thy brother is arrived, and thy father did kill the fatted calf, because in health he did receive him back.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:28 - 'And he was angry, and would not go in, therefore his father, having come forth, was entreating him;

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:29 - and he answering said to the father, Lo, so many years I do serve thee, and never thy command did I transgress, and to me thou didst never give a kid, that with my friends I might make merry;

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:30 - but when thy son -- this one who did devour thy living with harlots -- came, thou didst kill to him the fatted calf.

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:31 - 'And he said to him, Child, thou art always with me, and all my things are thine;

Unchecked Copy BoxLuk 15:32 - but to be merry, and to be glad, it was needful, because this thy brother was dead, and did live again, he was lost, and was found.'
