Bible: Luke 16:22-31

16:22Now 1  the poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham’s side. 2  The 3  rich man also died and was buried. 4  16:23 And in hell, 5  as he was in torment, 6  he looked up 7  and saw Abraham far off with Lazarus at his side. 8  16:24 So 9  he called out, 10 Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus 11  to dip the tip of his finger 12  in water and cool my tongue, because I am in anguish 13  in this fire.’ 14  16:25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, 15  remember that in your lifetime you received your good things and Lazarus likewise bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in anguish. 16  16:26 Besides all this, 17  a great chasm 18  has been fixed between us, 19  so that those who want to cross over from here to you cannot do so, and no one can cross from there to us.’ 16:27 So 20  the rich man 21  said, ‘Then I beg you, father – send Lazarus 22  to my father’s house 16:28 (for I have five brothers) to warn 23  them so that they don’t come 24  into this place of torment.’ 16:29 But Abraham said, 25 They have Moses and the prophets; they must respond to 26  them.’ 16:30 Then 27  the rich man 28  said, ‘No, father Abraham, but if someone from the dead 29  goes to them, they will repent.’ 16:31 He 30  replied to him, ‘If they do not respond to 31  Moses and the prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’ 32
