"The younger of them said to his father, 'Father, give me the share of the estate that falls to me.' So he divided his wealth between them.
"But he answered and said to his father, 'Look! For so many years I have been serving you and I have never neglected a command of yours; and yet you have never given me a young goat, so that I might celebrate with my friends;
"And he said to him, 'Son, you have always been with me, and all that is mine is yours.
