“And bring hither the fatted calfe, and kill it, and let vs eate and be merrie.”
King James Version (KJV)
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 ranne, and fell on his necke, and kissed him. 21. And the sonne said vnto him, Father, I haue sinned against heauen, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy sonne. 22. But the father saide to his seruants, Bring foorth the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shooes on his feete. 23. And bring hither the fatted calfe, and kill it, and let vs eate and be merrie. 24. For this my sonne was dead, and is aliue againe; hee was lost, & is found. And they began to be merie. 25. Now his elder sonne was in the field, and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musicke & dauncing, 26. And he called one of the seruants, and asked what these things meant.
