|Luke 15:11-20. εἶπεν δέ, ἄνθρωπός τις εἶχεν δύο υἱούς.
καὶ εἶπεν ὁ νεώτερος αὐτῶν τῷ πατρί, πάτερ, δός μοι τὸ ἐπιβάλλον μέρος
τῆς οὐσίας. ὁ δὲ διεῖλεν αὐτοῖς τὸν βίον. καὶ μετ' οὐ πολλὰς ἡμέρας συναγαγὼν
πάντα ὁ νεώτερος υἱὸς ἀπεδήμησεν εἰς χώραν μακράν, καὶ ἐκεῖ διεσκόρπισεν
τὴν οὐσίαν αὐτοῦ ζῶν ἀσώτως. δαπανήσαντος δὲ αὐτοῦ πάντα ἐγένετο λιμὸς
ἰσχυρὰ κατὰ τὴν χώραν ἐκείνην, καὶ αὐτὸς ἤρξατο ὑστερεῖσθαι. καὶ πορευθεὶς
ἐκολλήθη ἑνὶ τῶν πολιτῶν τῆς χώρας ἐκείνης, καὶ ἔπεμψεν αὐτὸν εἰς τοὺς
ἀγροὺς αὐτοῦ βόσκειν χοίρους: καὶ ἐπεθύμει χορτασθῆναι ἐκ τῶν κερατίων
ὧν ἤσθιον οἱ χοῖροι, καὶ οὐδεὶς ἐδίδου αὐτῷ. εἰς ἑαυτὸν δὲ ἐλθὼν ἔφη,
πόσοι μίσθιοι τοῦ πατρός μου περισσεύονται ἄρτων, ἐγὼ δὲ λιμῷ ὧδε ἀπόλλυμαι.
ἀναστὰς πορεύσομαι πρὸς τὸν πατέρα μου καὶ ἐρῶ αὐτῷ, πάτερ, ἥμαρτον εἰς
τὸν οὐρανὸν καὶ ἐνώπιόν σου, οὐκέτι εἰμὶ ἄξιος κληθῆναι υἱός σου: ποίησόν
με ὡς ἕνα τῶν μισθίων σου. καὶ ἀναστὰς ἦλθεν πρὸς τὸν πατέρα ἑαυτοῦ.
ἔτι δὲ αὐτοῦ μακρὰν ἀπέχοντος εἶδεν αὐτὸν ὁ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ καὶ ἐσπλαγχνίσθη
καὶ δραμὼν ἐπέπεσεν ἐπὶ τὸν τράχηλον αὐτοῦ καὶ κατεφίλησεν αὐτόν.
||Luke 15:11-20. And he said, A certain man had two sons: 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. And not many days after the
younger son gathered all together, and took his journey into a far country,
and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent
all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent
him into his fields to feed swine. And he would fain have filled his belly
with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him. 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! I will arise and go
to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven,
and before thee, And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as
one of thy hired servants. And he arose, and came to his father. But when
he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and
ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.
