“And when he had spent all, there arose a mighty famine in that land; and he began to be in want.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:14 He began to be in want - All his worldly pleasures failing, he grew conscious of his want of real good.
Lu 15:14 There arose a mighty famine. There is always one afar from God. The world cannot satisfy the soul. He began to be in want. Many a lost one who has wasted all feels the want so deeply as to destroy his life. Byron is said to "have died of wretchedness".
