Luke 15 (WEBP)
 Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming close to him to hear him.
 The Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, “This man welcomes sinners, and eats with them.”
 He told them this parable:
 “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?
 When he has found it, he carries it on his shoulders, rejoicing.
 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!’
 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.
 “Or what woman, if she had ten drachma° coins, if she lost one drachma coin, wouldn’t light a lamp, sweep the house, and seek diligently until she found it?
 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!’
 Even so, I tell you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner repenting.”
 He said, “A certain man had two sons.
 The younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of your property.’ So he divided his livelihood between them.
 Not many days after, the younger son gathered all of this together and traveled into a far country. There he wasted his property with riotous living.
 When he had spent all of it, there arose a severe famine in that country, and he began to be in need.
 He went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed pigs.
 He wanted to fill his belly with the pods that the pigs ate, but no one gave him any.
 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!
 I will get up and go to my father, and will tell him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight.
 I am no more worthy to be called your son. Make me as one of your hired servants.” ’
 “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, fell on his neck, and kissed him.
 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.’
 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring out the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.
 Bring the fattened calf, kill it, and let’s eat and celebrate;
 for this, my son, was dead and is alive again. He was lost and is found.’ Then they began to celebrate.
 “Now his elder son was in the field. As he came near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
 He called one of the servants to him and asked what was going on.
 He said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and your father has killed the fattened calf, because he has received him back safe and healthy.’
 But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and begged him.
 But he answered his father, ‘Behold, these many years I have served you, and I never disobeyed a commandment of yours, but you never gave me a goat, that I might celebrate with my friends.
 But when this your son came, who has devoured your living with prostitutes, you killed the fattened calf for him.’
 “He said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that is mine is yours.
 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.’ ”
Luke 15:8 A drachma coin was worth about 2 days wages for an agricultural laborer.

Luke 15 (KJVS)
 Then G1161 drew near G2258 (ImpfInd) G1448 (PresActPtc) unto him G846 all G3956 the publicans G5057 and G2532 sinners G268 for to hear G191 (PresActInf) him G846.
 And G2532 the Pharisees G5330 and G2532 scribes G1122 murmured G1234 (ImpfActInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), This man G3754 G3778 receiveth G4327 (PresMidPasDepInd) sinners G268, and G2532 eateth G4906 (PresActInd) with them G846.
 And G1161 he spake G2036 (Aor2ActInd) this G5026 parable G3850 unto G4314 them G846, saying G3004 (PresActPtc),
 What G5101 man G444 of G1537 you G5216, having G2192 (PresActPtc) an hundred G1540 sheep G4263, if G2532 he lose G622 (AorActPtc) one G1520 of G1537 them G846, doth G2641 not G3756 leave G2641 (PresActInd) the ninety and nine G1768 in G1722 the wilderness G2048, and G2532 go G4198 (PresMidPasDepInd) after G1909 that which is lost G622 (Perf2ActPtc), until G2193 he find G2147 (Aor2ActSubj) it G846?
 And G2532 when he hath found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], he layeth G2007 (PresActInd) [it] on G1909 his G1438 shoulders G5606, rejoicing G5463 (PresActPtc).
 And G2532 when he cometh G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) G1519 home G3624, he calleth together G4779 (PresActInd) [his] friends G5384 and G2532 neighbours G1069, saying G3004 (PresActPtc) unto them G846, Rejoice G4796 (Aor2PasDepImpr) with me G3427; for G3754 I have found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) my G3450 sheep G4263 which G3588 was lost G622 (Perf2ActPtc).
 I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, that G3754 likewise G3779 joy G5479 shall be G2071 (FutInd) in G1722 heaven G3772 over G1909 one G1520 sinner G268 that repenteth G3340 (PresActPtc), more than G2228 over G1909 ninety and nine G1768 just persons G1342, which G3748 need G2192 (PresActInd) G5532 no G3756 repentance G3341.
 Either G2228 what G5101 woman G1135 having G2192 (PresActPtc) ten G1176 pieces of silver G1406, if G1437 she lose G622 (AorActSubj) one G3391 piece G1406, doth not G3780 light G681 (PresActInd) a candle G3088, and G2532 sweep G4563 (PresActInd) the house G3614, and G2532 seek G2212 (PresActInd) diligently G1960 till G2193 G3755 she find G2147 (Aor2ActSubj) [it]?
 And G2532 when she hath found G2147 (Aor2ActPtc) [it], she calleth G4779 [her] friends G5384 and G2532 [her] neighbours G1069 together G4779 (PresMidInd), saying G3004 (PresActPtc), Rejoice G4796 (Aor2PasDepImpr) with me G3427; for G3754 I have found G2147 (Aor2ActInd) the piece G1406 which G3739 I had lost G622 (AorActInd).
 Likewise G3779, I say G3004 (PresActInd) unto you G5213, there is G1096 (PresMidPasDepInd) joy G5479 in the presence G1799 of the angels G32 of God G2316 over G1909 one G1520 sinner G268 that repenteth G3340 (PresActPtc).
 And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), A certain G5100 man G444 had G2192 (ImpfActInd) two G1417 sons G5207:
 And G2532 the younger G3501 of them G846 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to [his] father G3962, Father G3962, give G1325 (Aor2ActImpr) me G3427 the portion G3313 of goods G3776 that falleth G1911 (PresActPtc) [to me]. And G2532 he divided G1244 (Aor2ActInd) unto them G846 [his] living G979.
 And G2532 not G3756 many G4183 days G2250 after G3326 the younger G3501 son G5207 gathered G4863 all G537 together G4863 (Aor2ActPtc), and took his journey G589 (AorActInd) into G1519 a far G3117 country G5561, and G2532 there G1563 wasted G1287 (AorActInd) his G846 substance G3776 with riotous G811 living G2198 (PresActPtc).
 And G1161 when he G846 had spent G1159 (AorActPtc) all G3956, there arose G1096 (Aor2MidDepInd) a mighty G2478 famine G3042 in G2596 that G1565 land G5561; and G2532 he G846 began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to be in want G5302 (PresPasInf).
 And G2532 he went G4198 (AorPasDepPtc) and joined himself G2853 (AorPasInd) to G1520 a citizen G4177 of that G1565 country G5561; and G2532 he sent G3992 (AorActInd) him G846 into G1519 his G846 fields G68 to feed G1006 (PresActInf) swine G5519.
 And G2532 he would fain G1937 (ImpfActInd) have filled G1072 (AorActInf) his G846 belly G2836 with G575 the husks G2769 that G3739 the swine G5519 did eat G2068 (ImpfActInd): and G2532 no man G3762 gave G1325 (ImpfActInd) unto him G846.
 And G1161 when he came G2064 (Aor2ActPtc) to G1519 himself G1438, he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd), How many G4214 hired servants G3407 of my G3450 father’s G3962 have bread G740 enough and to spare G4052 (PresActInd), and G1161 I G1473 perish G622 (PresMidInd) with hunger G3042!
 I will arise G450 (Aor2ActPtc) and go G4198 (FutMidDepInd) to G4314 my G3450 father G3962, and G2532 will say G2046 (FutActInd) unto him G846, Father G3962, I have sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd) against G1519 heaven G3772, and G2532 before G1799 thee G4675,
 And G2532 am G1510 (PresInd) no more G3765 worthy G514 to be called G2564 (AorPasInf) thy G4675 son G5207: make G4160 (AorActImpr) me G3165 as G5613 one G1520 of thy G4675 hired servants G3407.
 And G2532 he arose G450 (Aor2ActPtc), and came G2064 (Aor2ActInd) to G4314 his G1438 father G3962. But G1161 when he G846 was yet G2089 a great way G3112 off G568 (PresActPtc), his G846 father G3962 saw G1492 (Aor2ActInd) him G846, and G2532 had compassion G4697 (AorPasDepInd), and G2532 ran G5143 (Aor2ActPtc), and fell G1968 (Aor2ActInd) on G1909 his G846 neck G5137, and G2532 kissed G2705 (AorActInd) him G846.
 And G1161 the son G5207 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Father G3962, I have sinned G264 (Aor2ActInd) against G1519 heaven G3772, and G2532 in G1799 thy G4675 sight G1799, and G2532 am G1510 (PresInd) no more G3765 worthy G514 to be called G2564 (AorPasInf) thy G4675 son G5207.
 But G1161 the father G3962 said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to G4314 his G846 servants G1401, Bring forth G1627 (AorActImpr) the best G4413 robe G4749, and G2532 put [it] on G1746 (AorActImpr) him G846; and G2532 put G1325 (Aor2ActImpr) a ring G1146 on G1519 his G846 hand G5495, and G2532 shoes G5266 on G1519 [his] feet G4228:
 And G2532 bring hither G5342 (AorActPtc) the fatted G4618 calf G3448, and kill G2380 (AorActImpr) [it]; and G2532 let us eat G5315 (Aor2ActPtc), and be merry G2165 (AorPasSubj):
 For G3754 this G3778 my G3450 son G5207 was G2258 (ImpfInd) dead G3498, and G2532 is alive again G326 (AorActInd); G2532 he was G2258 (ImpfInd) lost G622 (Perf2ActPtc), and G2532 is found G2147 (AorPasInd). And G2532 they began G756 (AorMidDepInd) to be merry G2165 (PresPasInf).
 Now G1161 his G846 elder G4245 son G5207 was G2258 (ImpfInd) in G1722 the field G68: and G2532 as G5613 he came G2064 (PresMidPasDepPtc) and drew nigh G1448 (AorActInd) to the house G3614, he heard G191 (AorActInd) musick G4858 and G2532 dancing G5525.
 And G2532 he called G4341 (AorMidDepPtc) one G1520 of the servants G3816, and asked G4441 (ImpfMidPasDepInd) what G5101 these things G5023 meant G1498 (PresOpt).
 And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, G3754 Thy G4675 brother G80 is come G2240 (PresActInd); and G2532 thy G4675 father G3962 hath killed G2380 (AorActInd) the fatted G4618 calf G3448, because G3754 he hath received G618 (Aor2ActInd) him G846 safe and sound G5198 (PresActPtc).
 And G1161 he was angry G3710 (AorPasInd), and G2532 would G2309 (ImpfActInd) not G3756 go in G1525 (Aor2ActInf): therefore G3767 came G1831 his G846 father G3962 out G1831 (Aor2ActPtc), and intreated G3870 (ImpfActInd) him G846.
 And G1161 he answering G611 (AorPasDepPtc) said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) to [his] father G3962, Lo G2400 (Aor2ActImpr), these many G5118 years G2094 do I serve G1398 (PresActInd) thee G4671, neither G3763 transgressed I G3928 (Aor2ActInd) at any time G3763 thy G4675 commandment G1785: and G2532 yet G2532 thou G1325 never G3763 gavest G1325 (AorActInd) me G1698 a kid G2056, that G2443 I might make merry G2165 (AorPasSubj) with G3326 my G3450 friends G5384:
 But G1161 as soon as G3753 this G3778 thy G4675 son G5207 was come G2064 (Aor2ActInd), which G3588 hath devoured G2719 (Aor2ActPtc) thy G4675 living G979 with G3326 harlots G4204, thou hast killed G2380 (AorActInd) for him G846 the fatted G4618 calf G3448.
 And G1161 he said G2036 (Aor2ActInd) unto him G846, Son G5043, thou G4771 art G1488 (PresInd) ever G3842 with G3326 me G1700, and G2532 all G3956 that I have G1699 is G2076 (PresInd) thine G4674.
 It was G1161 meet G1163 (ImpfInd) that we should make merry G2165 (AorPasInf), and G2532 be glad G5463 (Aor2PasDepInf): for G3754 this G3778 thy G4675 brother G80 was G2258 (ImpfInd) dead G3498, and G2532 is alive again G326 (AorActInd); and G2532 was G2258 (ImpfInd) lost G622 (Perf2ActPtc), and G2532 is found G2147 (AorPasInd).
Young’s Literal Translation
Luke 15 (YLT)
 And all the tax-gatherers and the sinners were coming nigh to him, to hear him,
 and the Pharisees and the scribes were murmuring, saying-This one doth receive sinners, and doth eat with them.’
 And he spake unto them this simile, saying,
 ‘What man of you having a hundred sheep, and having lost one out of them, doth not leave behind the ninety-nine in the wilderness, and go on after the lost one, till he may find it?
 and having found, he doth lay it on his shoulders rejoicing,
 and having come to the house, he doth call together the friends and the neighbours, saying to them, Rejoice with me, because I found my sheep-the lost one.
 ‘I say to you, that so joy shall be in the heaven over one sinner reforming, rather than over ninety-nine righteous men, who have no need of reformation.
 ‘Or what woman having ten drachms, if she may lose one drachm, doth not light a lamp, and sweep the house, and seek carefully till that she may find?
 and having found, she doth call together the female friends and the neighbours, saying, Rejoice with me, for I found the drachm that I lost.
 ‘So I say to you, joy doth come before the messengers of God over one sinner reforming.’
 And he said, ‘A certain man had two sons,
 and the younger of them said to the father, Father, give me the portion of the substance falling to me, and he divided to them the living.
 ‘And not many days after, having gathered all together, the younger son went abroad to a far country, and there he scattered his substance, living riotously;
 and he having spent all, there came a mighty famine on that country, and himself began to be in want;
 and having gone on, he joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him to the fields to feed swine,
 and he was desirous to fill his belly from the husks that the swine were eating, and no one was giving to him.
 ‘And having come to himself, he said, How many hirelings of my father have a superabundance of bread, and I here with hunger am perishing!
 having risen, I will go on unto my father, and will say to him, Father, I did sin-to the heaven, and before thee,
 and no more am I worthy to be called thy son; make me as one of thy hirelings.
 ‘And having risen, he went unto his own father, and he being yet far distant, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and having ran he fell upon his neck and kissed him;
 and the son said to him, Father, I did sin-to the heaven, and before thee, and no more am I worthy to be called thy son.
 ‘And the father said unto his servants, Bring forth the first robe, and clothe him, and give a ring for his hand, and sandals for the feet;
 and having brought the fatted calf, kill it, and having eaten, we may be merry,
 because this my son was dead, and did live again, and he was lost, and was found; and they began to be merry.
 ‘And his elder son was in a field, and as, coming, he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing,
 and having called near one of the young men, he was inquiring what these things might be,
 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.’
