Luke 15:1-10 Darby’s Translation

The Parable of the Lost Sheep

15 1  And all the tax-gatherers and the sinners were coming near to him to hear him; 2  and the Pharisees and the scribes murmured, saying, This [man] receives sinners and eats with them. 3  And he spoke to them this parable, saying, 4  What man of you having a hundred sheep, and having lost one of them, does not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness and go after that which is lost, until he find it? 5  and having found it, he lays it upon his own shoulders, rejoicing; 6  and being come to the house, calls together the friends and the neighbours, saying to them, Rejoice with me, for I have found my lost sheep. 7  I say unto you, that thus there shall be joy in heaven for one repenting sinner, [more] than for ninety and nine righteous who have no need of repentance.

The Parable of the Lost Coin

8  Or, what woman having ten drachmas, if she lose one drachma, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and seek carefully till she find it? 9  and having found it she calls together the friends and neighbours, saying, Rejoice with me, for I have found the drachma which I had lost. 10  Thus, I say unto you, there is joy before the angels of God for one repenting sinner.
