Luke 15 Maori Bible (MAORI)
15 Na ka whakatata ki a ia nga pupirikana katoa me nga tangata hara, ki te whakarongo ki a ia.
2 A ka amuamu nga Parihi, me nga karaipi, ka mea, E manako ana tenei tangata ki nga tangata hara, e kai tahi ana me ratou.
3 Na ka korerotia e ia tenei kupu whakarite ki a ratou, a ka mea,
4 Ko tehea tangata o koutou he rau ana hipi, a ka ngaro tetahi o ratou, e kore ianei e waiho e ia nga mea e iwa tekau ma iwa i te koraha, a ka haere ki taua mea i ngaro, kia kitea ra ano?
5 A ka kitea, ka waha i runga i ona pokohiwi, ka koa.
6 A, no ka tae ki te whare, ka karangatia ona hoa me nga tangata e noho tata ana, ka mea ki a ratou, Kia hari tahi tatou; kua kitea hoki taku hipi i ngaro.
7 Ko taku kupu tenei ki a koutou, ka pera ano te hari i te rangi mo te tangata hara kotahi ina ripeneta, nui atu i te hari mo nga tangata tika e iwa tekau ma iwa, kahore nei o ratou mea e ripeneta ai.
8 Ko tehea wahine ranei, kotahi tekau nei ana moni hiriwa, ki te ngaro tetahi, e kore ianei ia e tahu i te rama, e tahi i te whare, e rapu marie, kia kitea ra ano?
9 A, no ka kitea, ka karangatia e ia ona hoa me te hunga e noho tata ana, ka mea, kia hari tahi me ahau, kua kitea hoki taku moni i ngaro ra.
10 Waihoki, ko taku kupu tenei ki a koutou, he hari kei te aroaro o nga anahera a te Atua mo te tangata hara kotahi ina ripeneta.
11 I mea ano ia, Tokorua nga tama a tetahi tangata:
12 Ka mea to muri o raua ki tona papa, E pa, homai ki ahau te whai taonga e wehea e koe moku. Na, ka wehewehea e ia ki a raua tona oranga.
13 A kihai i maha nga ra, ka kohikohia e te tama o muri nga mea katoa, a haere ana ki te whenua tawhiti, maumauria ana ona taonga ki reira, he toreretanga ki te kino.
14 A, no ka poto ana mea katoa, ka pa te matekai ki taua whenua, a ka timata ia te rawakore.
15 Na ka haere ia, ka piri ki tetahi o nga tangata o taua whenua; ka tonoa e ia ki ana mara ki te whangai poaka.
16 I hiahia hoki ia kia whakakiia tona kopu ki nga kiri e kainga ana e nga poaka: heoi kihai i hoatu e tetahi ki a ia.
17 No te hokinga ake ia o ona whakaaro, ka mea ia, Ano te tini o nga kaimahi a toku papa, he nui noa atu a ratou taro, ko ahau ia ka ngaro i te kaikore!
18 Ka whakatika ahau, ka haere ki toku matua, ka mea ki a ia, E pa, kua hara ahau ki te rangi, ki tou aroaro ano,
19 A heoi ano tikanga kia kiia ahau he tama nau: meinga ahau kia rite ki tetahi o au kaimahi.
20 Na ka whakatika ia, a haere ana ki tona matua. Na, i a ia ano i tawhiti, ka kite tona matua i a ia, ka aroha, ka oma, hinga iho ki tona kaki, kihi ana i a ia.
21 Na ko te meatanga a te tama ki a ia, E pa, kua hara ahau ki te rangi, ki tou aroaro ano, a heoi ano tikanga kia kiia ahau he tama nau.
22 Na ka mea te matua ki ana pononga, Kia hohoro te mau mai i te kakahu pai rawa, a ka whakakakahu ki a ia; homai hoki he mowhiti mo tona ringa, he hu hoki mo ona waewae:
23 Kawea mai ano te kuao kau, te mea whangai, patua; kia kai tatou, kia koa te ngakau;
24 Ko tenei tama hoki aku i mate, a kua ora; i ngaro, a kua kitea. A ka anga ratou ka koa.
25 Na kei te mara tana tama matamua: a, no tona haerenga mai, ka whakatata ki te whare, ka rongo i te waiata, i te kanikani.
26 Na karangatia ana e ia tetahi o nga kaimahi, ka ui atu, he aha ra enei mea.
27 Na ka mea mai tera ki a ia, Kua tae mai tou teina; kua patua e tou matua te kuao momona a te kau, no te mea kua tae ora mai ia ki a ia.
28 Na ka riri ia, kihai hoki i pai kia haere ki roto: me i reira ka haere atu tona matua ki waho, ka tohe ki a ia.
29 Na ka whakahoki ia, ka mea ki tona matua, Nana, te tini o nga tau i mahi ai ahau ki a koe, kahore rawa hoki i takatakahi i tau kupu: heoi kahore rawa i homai e koe ki ahau he kuao koati, kia koa tahi ai ahau me oku hoa:
30 Otira, i te taenga mai o tenei tama au, i pau nei tou oranga i a ia, ratou tahi ko nga wahine kairau, kua patua e koe te kuao momona a te kau mana.
31 Na ka mea tera ki a ia, E tama, kei ahau tonu koe, amu hoki aku mea katoa.
32 He tika ia kia koa tatou, kia hari: i mate hoki tou teina nei, a kua ora; i ngaro, a kua kitea.
Luke 15 New International Version (NIV)
The Parable of the Lost Sheep
15 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. 2 But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.”
3 Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.
The Parable of the Lost Coin
8 “Or suppose a woman has ten silver coins[a] and loses one. Doesn’t she light a lamp, sweep the house and search carefully until she finds it? 9 And when she finds it, she calls her friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost coin.’ 10 In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
The Parable of the Lost Son
11 Jesus continued: “There was a man who had two sons. 12 The younger one said to his father, ‘Father, give me my share of the estate.’ So he divided his property between them.
13 “Not long after that, the younger son got together all he had, set off for a distant country and there squandered his wealth in wild living. 14 After he had spent everything, there was a severe famine in that whole country, and he began to be in need. 15 So he went and hired himself out to a citizen of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed pigs. 16 He longed to fill his stomach with the pods that the pigs were eating, but no one gave him anything.
17 “When he came to his senses, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have food to spare, and here I am starving to death! 18 I will set out and go back to my father and say to him: Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; make me like one of your hired servants.’ 20 So he got up and went to his father.
“But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.
21 “The son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and against you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’
22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Quick! Bring the best robe and put it on him. Put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. 23 Bring the fattened calf and kill it. Let’s have a feast and celebrate. 24 For this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.
25 “Meanwhile, the older son was in the field. When he came near the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked him what was going on. 27 ‘Your brother has come,’ he replied, ‘and your father has killed the fattened calf because he has him back safe and sound.’
28 “The older brother became angry and refused to go in. So his father went out and pleaded with him. 29 But he answered his father, ‘Look! All these years I’ve been slaving for you and never disobeyed your orders. Yet you never gave me even a young goat so I could celebrate with my friends. 30 But when this son of yours who has squandered your property with prostitutes comes home, you kill the fattened calf for him!’
31 “‘My son,’ the father said, ‘you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we had to celebrate and be glad, because this brother of yours was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’”
