11 Then 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 falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood.
13 “And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together,
journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with
14 “But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land,
and he began to be in want.
15 “Then 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 gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the
swine ate, and no one gave him anything.
17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired
servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 ‘I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have
sinned against heaven and before you,
19 “and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of
your hired servants.” ‘
20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still 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 to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in
your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it
on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.
23 ‘And bring the fatted calf here 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.
