After he had spent his whole life’s worth he began to be in need. So he set off and hired himself out to a citizen of the country, who sent him into the fields to feed the pigs. One day when he finally came to his senses
“How are my father’s servants have food to spare and I am starving to death.” “I will set out to go back home and say to my father: Father I have sinned against you I am no longer worthy to be called your son."
Although, he was still a long way off his father saw him coming towards him and his father was immediately filled with compassion.
“Quick bring the best robe to him, put a ring on his finger and bring the fattest calf you can find Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’
"Father, I have sinned against you I am no longer worthy to be called your son.”
My son you are always with me and everything that I have is yours, but your brother who was dead is now alive again. He was lost and is found.
Now when the older son heard about what his father had just said he became infuriated and said to his father
All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. But when this son of yours who has wasted your money with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!.”
