HNV 1 Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming close to him to hear him. NIV 1 Now the tax collectors and "sinners" were all gathering around to hear him. HNV 2 The Perushim and the Sofrim murmured, saying, "This man welcomes sinners, and eats with them." NIV 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, "This man welcomes sinners and eats with them." HNV 3 He told them this parable. NIV 3 Then Jesus told them this parable: HNV 4 "Which of you men, if you had one hundred sheep, and lost one of them, wouldn't leave the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go after the one that was lost, until he found it? NIV 4 "Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? HNV 5 When he has found it, he carries it on his shoulders, rejoicing. NIV 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders HNV 6 When he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep which was lost!' NIV 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.' HNV 7 I tell you that even so there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents, than over ninety-nine righteous people who need no repentance. NIV 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. HNV 8 Or what woman, if she had ten drachma coins, if she lost one drachma, wouldn't light a lamp, sweep the house, and seek diligently until she found it? NIV 8 "Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins and loses one. Does she not light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? HNV 9 When she has found it, she calls together her friends and neighbors, saying, 'Rejoice with me, for I have found the drachma which I had lost.' NIV 9 And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.' HNV 10 Even so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner repenting." NIV 10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." HNV 11 He said, "A certain man had two sons. NIV 11 Jesus continued: "There was a man who had two sons. HNV 12 The younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me my share of your property.' He divided his living to them. NIV 12 The younger one said to his father, 'Father, give me my share of the estate.' So he divided his property between them. HNV 13 Not many days after, the younger son gathered all of this together and took his journey into a far country. There he wasted his property with riotous living. NIV 13 "Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. HNV 14 When he had spent all of it, there arose a severe famine in that country, and he began to be in need. NIV 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. HNV 15 He went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed pigs. NIV 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. HNV 16 He wanted to fill his belly with the husks that the pigs ate, but no one gave him any. NIV 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything. HNV 17 But when he came to himself he said, 'How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough to spare, and I'm dying with hunger! NIV 17 "When he came to his senses, he said, 'How many of my father's hired men have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! HNV 18 I will get up and go to my father, and will tell him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight. NIV 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. HNV 19 I am no more worthy to be called your son. Make me as one of your hired servants."' NIV 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired men.' HNV 20 "He arose, and came to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him. NIV 20 So he got up and went to his father. "But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him. HNV 21 The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in your sight. I am no more worthy to be called your son.' NIV 21 "The son said to him, 'Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son. ' HNV 22 "But the father said to his servants, 'Bring out the best robe, and put it on him. Put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. NIV 22 "But the father said to his servants, 'Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. HNV 23 Bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let us eat, and celebrate; NIV 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let's have a feast and celebrate. HNV 24 for this, my son, was dead, and is alive again. He was lost, and is found.' They began to be merry. NIV 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' So they began to celebrate. HNV 25 "Now his elder son was in the field. As he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. NIV 25 "Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. HNV 26 He called one of the servants to him, and asked what was going on. NIV 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. HNV 27 He said to him, 'Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf, because he has received him safe and sound.' NIV 27 'Your brother has come,' he replied, 'and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.' HNV 28 But he was angry, and would not go in. Therefore his father came out, and begged him. NIV 28 "The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. HNV 29 But he answered his father, 'Behold, these many years I served you, and I never disobeyed a mitzvah of yours, and you never gave me a goat, that I might celebrate with my friends. NIV 29 But he answered his father, 'Look! All these years I've been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. HNV 30 But when this, your son, came, who has devoured your living with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him.' NIV 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!' HNV 31 "He said to him, 'Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours. NIV 31 " 'My son,' the father said, 'you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. HNV 32 But it was appropriate to celebrate and be glad, for this, your brother, was dead, and is alive again. He was lost, and is found.'" NIV 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.' "
