one of you has 100 sheep and loses one of them. Does he not leave
the 99 in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he
5 And when he finds
it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulder and goes home
6 Then he calls his
friends and neighbors together and says rejoice with me. I have
found my lost sheep.
7 I tell you the truth there
will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than
over ninety-nine who do not need to repent.
