nkjv@Revelation:14:12 @ Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.
nkjv@Luke:15:11 @ Then He said: "A certain man had two sons.
nkjv@Luke:15:12 @ And the younger of them said to his father, "Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.' So he divided to them his livelihood.
nkjv@Luke:15:13 @ And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.
nkjv@Luke:15:14 @ But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want.
nkjv@Luke:15:15 @ Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.
nkjv@Luke:15:16 @ And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.
nkjv@Luke:15:17 @ "But when he came to himself, he said, "How many of my father's hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!
nkjv@Luke:15:18 @ I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you,
nkjv@Luke:15:19 @ and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants."'
nkjv@Luke:15:20 @ "And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him.
nkjv@Luke:15:21 @ And the son said to him, "Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.'
nkjv@Luke:15:22 @ "But the father said to his servants, "Bring out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet.
nkjv@Luke:15:23 @ And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry;
nkjv@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.
nkjv@Luke:15:25 @ "Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing.
nkjv@Luke:15:26 @ So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant.
nkjv@Luke:15:27 @ And he said to him, "Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.'
nkjv@Luke:15:28 @ "But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him.
nkjv@Luke:15:29 @ So he answered and said to his father, "Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends.
nkjv@Luke:15:30 @ But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.'
nkjv@Luke:15:31 @ "And he said to him, "Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.
nkjv@Luke:15:32 @ It was right that we should make merry and be glad, for your brother was dead and is alive again, and was lost and is found."'
