“And when he came to himself, he said, How many hired servants of my father's have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger!”
King James Version (KJV)
15:17 And coming to himself - For till then he was beside himself, as all men are, so long as they are without God in the world.
Lu 15:17 When he came to himself. Sin is an infatuation, a craze. When the blinded eyes of the soul are opened no man is content to abide in sin; that is, in destruction. How many hired servants. The son was now himself a hired servant; so are all sinners, and the service is a hard one.
