“And he would fain have filled his belly with the husks that the swine did eat: and no man gave unto him.”
King James Version (KJV)
15:16 He would fain have filled his belly with the husks - He would fain have satisfied himself with worldly comforts. Vain, fruitless endeavour!
Lu 15:16 With the husks. The pods of the carob tree. The husks of animal pleasures cannot satisfy the soul.
