Luke 15:8-10 New International Version

The Parable of the Lost Coin

8  "Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins[1]and loses one. Doesn't she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? 9  And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, 'Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.' 10  In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents."
