THE PRODIGAL'S CONFESSIONREV. HENRY KING, M.A. LUKE XV. 18, 19. I will arise and go to my Father^ and will say unto him.

And he divided unto them his living. And not numy days qfier, the younger son gathered all together, and took hisjoumey into afar country, and there wasted his substance with riotous living. And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land, and he began to be in want. — The Prodigal re-presents the repefitant sinner ; and the parable ON LUKE XV. 18, 19. 253 details the manner of his reconciliation with God. No sooner was he left to his own guidance^ than^ as we are told, he went into a
