Aug 4 a He told them this parable, “Who of you, on losing one1 of a hundred sheep, doesnt leave the ninety-nine in the field to search until he finds the lost one? Then he joyfully carries it home on his shoulder, assembles his friends and neighbors, saying, Lets rejoice, I have found my lost sheep. I say there is more joy in heaven over one repentant sinner than over ninety-nine righteous ones who dont need repentance.

b What woman with ten silver coins, who loses one, doesnt light a lamp and comb the house till she finds it? She then calls friends and neighbors, saying, Lets rejoice; Ive found my lost coin. So there is joy among Gods angels over one repentant sinner.”
