LUK 15:3 And he spake this parable unto them, saying,
LUK 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of
them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after
that which is lost, until he find it?
LUK 15:5 And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders,
LUK 15:6 And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and
neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep
which was lost.
LUK 15:7 I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one
sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons,
