    Parable #33 ~ Luke 16:19-31 ~ The Rich Man and Lazarus ~

    “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in
    luxury every day. At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with
    sores and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came
    and licked his sores.

    “The time came when the beggar died and the angels carried him to
    Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. In hell, where he was in
    torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So
    he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip
    of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’

    “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received
    your good things, while Lazarus received bad things, but now he is comforted here
    and you are in agony. And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has
    been fixed, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone
    cross over from there to us.’

    “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lazarus to my father’s house,
    for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to
    this place of torment.’

    “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to

    “ ‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them,
    they will repent.’

    “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will
    not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ ”
