Bible: Luke 16:19-24

The Rich Man and Lazarus

16:19There was a rich man who dressed in purple 1  and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously 2  every day. 16:20 But at his gate lay 3  a poor man named Lazarus 4  whose body was covered with sores, 5  16:21 who longed to eat 6  what fell from the rich man’s table. In addition, the dogs 7  came and licked 8  his sores.

16:22Now 9  the poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. 10  The 11  rich man also died and was buried. 12  16:23 And in hell, 13  as he was in torment, 14  he looked up 15  and saw Abraham far off with Lazarus at his side. 16  16:24 So 17  he called out, 18 Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus 19  to dip the tip of his finger 20  in water and cool my tongue, because I am in anguish 21  in this fire.’ 22
