and he said to him -- Thy brother is arrived, and thy father did kill the fatted calf, because in health he did receive him back.
`And he was angry, and would not go in, therefore his father, having come forth, was entreating him;
and he answering said to the father, Lo, so many years I do serve thee, and never thy command did I transgress, and to me thou didst never give a kid, that with my friends I might make merry;
but when thy son -- this one who did devour thy living with harlots -- came, thou didst kill to him the fatted calf.
`And he said to him, Child, thou art always with me, and all my things are thine;
but to be merry, and to be glad, it was needful, because this thy brother was dead, and did live again, he was lost, and was found.'
