Luke 15:18-19

Context
15:18 I will get up and go to my father and say to him, “Father, I have sinned 1  against heaven 2  and against 3  you. 15:19 I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me 4  like one of your hired workers.”’

1 sn In the confession “I have sinned” there is a recognition of wrong that pictures the penitent coming home and “being found.”

2 sn The phrase against heaven is a circumlocution for God.

3 tn According to BDAG 342 s.v. ἐνωπιον 4.a, “in relation to ἁμαρτάνειν ἐ. τινος sin against someone Lk 15:18, 21 (cf. Jdth 5:17; 1 Km 7:6; 20:1).”

4 tn Or “make me.” Here is a sign of total humility.
