Darby's Synopsis
   1: And all the tax-gatherers and the sinners were coming near to him to hear him;
   2: and the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, This [man] receives sinners and eats with them.
   3: And he spoke to them this parable, saying,
   4: What man of you having a hundred sheep, and having lost one of them, does not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness and go after that which is lost, until he find it?
   5: and having found it, he lays it upon his own shoulders, rejoicing;
   6: and being come to the house, calls together the friends and the neighbours, saying to them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my lost sheep.
   7: I say unto you, that thus there shall be joy in heaven for one repenting sinner, [more] than for ninety and nine righteous who have no need of repentance.
   8: Or, what woman having ten drachmas, if she lose one drachma, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek carefully till she find it?
   9: and having found it she calls together the friends and neighbours, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the drachma which I had lost.
   10: Thus, I say unto you, there is joy before the angels of God for one repenting sinner.
   11: And he said, A certain man had two sons;
   12: and the younger of them said to his father, Father, give to me the share of the property that falls [to me]. And he divided to them what he was possessed of.
   13: And after not many days the younger son gathering all together went away into a country a long way off, and there dissipated his property, living in debauchery.
   14: But when he had spent all there arose a violent famine throughout that country, and he began to be in want.
   15: And he went and joined himself to one of the citizens of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
   16: And he longed to fill his belly with the husks which the swine were eating; and no one gave to him.
   17: And coming to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have abundance of bread, and I perish here by famine.
   18: I will rise up and go to my father, and I will say to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee;
   19: I am no longer worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
   20: And he rose up and went to his own father. But while he was yet a long way off, his father saw him, and was moved with compassion, and ran, and fell upon his neck, and covered him with kisses.
   21: And the son said to him, Father, I have sinned against heaven and before thee; I am no longer worthy to be called thy son.
   22: But the father said to his bondmen, Bring out the best robe and clothe him in [it], and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet;
   23: and bring the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and make merry:
   24: for this my son was dead and has come to life, was lost and has been found. And they began to make merry.
   25: And his elder son was in the field; and as, coming [up], he drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.
   26: And having called one of the servants, he inquired what these things might be.
   27: And he said to him, Thy brother is come, and thy father has killed the fatted calf because he has received him safe and well.
   28: But he became angry and would not go in. And his father went out and besought him.
   29: But he answering said to his father, Behold, so many years I serve thee, and never have I transgressed a commandment of thine; and to me hast thou never given a kid that I might make merry with my friends:
   30: but when this thy son, who has devoured thy substance with harlots, is come, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
   31: But he said to him, Child, thou art ever with me, and all that is mine is thine.
   32: But it was right to make merry and rejoice, because this thy brother was dead and has come to life again, and was lost and has been found.
