Luke 15:4-7

4 a  What man of you, having a hundred sheep b  if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine c  in the open country, and d  go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5And when he has found it, e  he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for f  I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who g  repents than over ninety-nine h  righteous persons who need no repentance.
