11 And he said, “There was a man who had two sons. 12 And  the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the  share of property that is coming to me.’ And he divided his  property between them. 13 Not many days later, the younger  son gathered all he had and took a journey into a far country,  and there he squandered his property in reckless living. 14 And  when he had spent everything, a severe famine arose in that  country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired  himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him  into his fields to feed pigs. 16 And he was longing to be fed with  the pods that the pigs 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 more than enough bread, but I  perish here with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and  I will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and  before you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son.  Treat me as one of your hired servants.”’ 20 And he arose and  came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his  father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him  and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have  sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to  be called your son.’ 22 But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring  quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his  hand, and shoes on his feet. 23 And bring the fattened calf and  kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 24 For this my son was dead,  and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to  celebrate. 

25 “Now his older son was in the field, and as he came and  drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 And he  called one of the servants and asked what these things meant.  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.’ 28 But he was angry and refused to go in. His  father came out and entreated him, 29 but he answered his  father, ‘Look, these many years I have served you, and I never  disobeyed your command, yet you never gave me a young goat,  that I might celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of  yours came, who has devoured your property with prostitutes,  you killed the fattened calf for him!’ 31 And he said to him,  ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. 32 It  was fitting to celebrate and be glad, for this your brother was  dead, and is alive; he was lost, and is found.’”- Luke 15:1-3
