20 "So he got up and came to ahis father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and b1embraced him and kissed him. 21 "And the son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight ; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.' 22 "But the father said to his slaves, 'Quickly bring out 2the best robe and put it on him, and 3put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet ; 23 and bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat and celebrate ; 24 for this son of mine was 4dead and has come to life again ; he was lost and has been found.' And they began to celebrate. 25 "Now his older son was in the field, and when he came and approached the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 "And he summoned one of the servants and began inquiring what these things could be. 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 became angry and was not willing to go in; and his father came out and began pleading with him. 29 "But he answered and said to his father, 'Look ! For so many years I have been serving you and I have never cneglected a command of yours ; and yet you have never given me a young goat, so that I might celebrate with my friends ; 30 but when this son of yours came, who has devoured your d5wealth with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him.'
