“Now his elder sonne was in the field, and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard musicke & dauncing,”
King James Version (KJV)
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. 27. And he said vnto him, Thy brother is come, and thy father hath killed the fatted calfe, because he hath receiued him safe and sound. 28. And he was angry, and would not goe in: therefore came his father out, and intreated him.
