kjv@Luke:15:12@ 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.
kjv@Luke:15:13@ 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.
kjv@Luke:15:14@ And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.
kjv@Luke:15:15@ And he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country; and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
kjv@Luke:15:16@ And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.
kjv@Luke:15:17@ 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!
kjv@Luke:15:18@ I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and before thee,
kjv@Luke:15:19@ And am no more worthy to be called thy son: make me as one of thy hired servants.
kjv@Luke:15:20@ 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.
kjv@Luke:15:21@ And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.
kjv@Luke:15:22@ But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:
kjv@Luke:15:23@ And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:
kjv@Luke:15:24@ For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.
kjv@Luke:15:25@ Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musick and dancing.
kjv@Luke:15:26@ And he called one of the servants, and asked what these things meant.
kjv@Luke:15:27@ And he said unto him, Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf, because he hath received him safe and sound.
kjv@Luke:15:28@ And he was angry, and would not go in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
kjv@Luke:15:29@ And he answering said to his father, Lo, these many years do I serve thee, neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment: and yet thou never gavest me a kid, that I might make merry with my friends:
kjv@Luke:15:30@ But as soon as this thy son was come, which hath devoured thy living with harlots, thou hast killed for him the fatted calf.
kjv@Luke:15:31@ And he said unto him, Son, thou art ever with me, and all that I have is thine.
kjv@Luke:15:32@ It was meet that we should make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is alive again; and was lost, and is found.
kjv@Luke:16:1@ And he said also unto his disciples, There was a certain rich man, which had a steward; and the same was accused unto him that he had wasted his goods.
kjv@Luke:16:2@ And he called him, and said unto him, How is it that I hear this of thee? give an account of thy stewardship; for thou mayest be no longer steward.
kjv@Luke:16:3@ Then the steward said within himself, What shall I do? for my lord taketh away from me the stewardship: I cannot dig; to beg I am ashamed.
kjv@Luke:16:4@ I am resolved what to do, that, when I am put out of the stewardship, they may receive me into their houses.
kjv@Luke:16:5@ So he called every one of his lord's debtors unto him, and said unto the first, How much owest thou unto my lord?
kjv@Luke:16:6@ And he said, An hundred measures of oil. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and sit down quickly, and write fifty.
kjv@Luke:16:7@ Then said he to another, And how much owest thou? And he said, An hundred measures of wheat. And he said unto him, Take thy bill, and write fourscore.
kjv@Luke:16:8@ And the lord commended the unjust steward, because he had done wisely: for the children of this world are in their generation wiser than the children of light.
kjv@Luke:16:9@ And I say unto you, Make to yourselves friends of the mammon of unrighteousness; that, when ye fail, they may receive you into everlasting habitations.
kjv@Luke:16:10@ He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
kjv@Luke:16:11@ If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?
kjv@Luke:16:12@ And if ye have not been faithful in that which is another man's, who shall give you that which is your own?
kjv@Luke:16:13@ No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
kjv@Luke:16:14@ And the Pharisees also, who were covetous, heard all these things: and they derided him.
kjv@Luke:16:15@ And he said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God.
kjv@Luke:16:16@ The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
kjv@Luke:16:17@ And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
kjv@Luke:16:18@ Whosoever putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and whosoever marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery.
kjv@Luke:16:19@ There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:
kjv@Luke:16:20@ And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,
kjv@Luke:16:21@ And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
kjv@Luke:16:22@ And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;
kjv@Luke:16:23@ And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.
kjv@Luke:16:24@ And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.
kjv@Luke:16:25@ But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.
kjv@Luke:16:26@ And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.
kjv@Luke:16:27@ Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:
kjv@Luke:16:28@ For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.
kjv@Luke:16:29@ Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.
kjv@Luke:16:30@ And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.
kjv@Luke:16:31@ And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
