Luke 15

The Prodigal Son 

A – Two Sons, The Younger
11. And he said, A certain man had two sons:
12. And the younger of them said to his father,  

B – Divided His Living – Took His Journey
Father, give me the portion of goods that falleth to me.
And he divided unto them his living

13. And not many days after
the younger son gathered all together,
and took his journey into a far country,

C – Riotous Living – A Mighty Famine – In Want
and there wasted his substance with riotous living          

14. And when he had spent all,
there arose a mighty famine in that land;
and he began to be in want

D – Sent into Fields
15. And he went and joined himself
to a citizen of that country; 

and he sent him into his fields to feed swine.

E – Husks — He Came to Himself
16. And he would fain have filled his belly
with the husks that the swine did eat:     
and no man gave unto him.

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! 

18. I will arise and go to my father, and will say unto him,           
Father, I have sinned against heaven,
and before thee,
19. And am no more worthy to be called thy son:
make me as one of thy hired servants

20. And he arose, and came to his father.           

F – His Father Saw Him, Ran, Kissed
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.

E – I have Sinned
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.
[Ellipsis]

F – The Best Robe
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: 

23. And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it;
and let us eat, and be merry: 

24. For this my son was dead, and is alive again;
he was lost, and is found.
And they began to be merry

A – Elder Son
25. Now his elder son was in the field:

B – Draws Nigh unto the House
and as he came and drew nigh to the house,

C – No Want
he heard musick and dancing.

D – Brother has Come Home
26. And he called one of the servants,
and asked what these things meant. 

27. And he said unto him, Thy brother is come;

E – He was Angry
and thy father hath killed the fatted calf,
because he hath received him safe and sound.

28. And he was angry,
and would not go in:     

F – His Father Comes Out, Intreats
therefore came his father out,
and intreated him.

E – Not Transgressed at Any Time
29. And he answering said to his father,
Lo these many years do I serve thee,
neither transgressed I at any time thy commandment:

F – Thou Art Ever With Me, All that I Have is Thine
and yet thou never gavest me a kid,
that I might make merry with my friends: 

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. 

31. And he said unto him,
Son, thou art ever with me,
and all that I have is thine

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.
