12 And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me. And he divided unto them his living.
14 And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
16 And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
17 And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
19 And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
23 And bring hither the fatted calf, 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.
