 230   The  RICH  MAN  &  LAZARUS 
   Matt       Mark    Luke 16
     19  'There was a rich man, 
      who was clothed in purple and fine linen
      and who feasted sumptuously every day.
   

20

And at his gate lay a poor man named Lazarus,
   

 

full of sores,
   

21

who desired to be fed
      with what fell from the rich man's table;
      moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.
   

22

The poor man died
      and was carried by the angels
   

 

to Abraham's bosom. 
      The rich man also died
      and was buried;
   

23

and in Hades, being in torment,
      he lifted up his eyes, and saw Abraham far off
      and Lazarus in his bosom.
   

24

And he called out, 
      'Father Abraham, have mercy upon me,
      and send Lazarus to dip his finger in water
      and cool my tongue;
      for I am in anguish in this flame.'
   

25

But Abraham answered,
      'Son, remember
      that you in your lifetime received your good things,
      and Lazarus in like manner evil things;
      but now he is comforted here,
      and you are in anguish.
   

26

And besides all this, 
      between us and you a great chasm has been fixed,
      in order that those who would pass from here 
      to you may not be able,
      and none may cross from there to us.'
   

27

And he said,
      'Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father's house, 
   

28

for I have five brothers,
      so that he may warn them, 
      lest they also come into this place of torment.'
   

29

But Abraham said, 
      'They have Moses and the prophets; 
      let them hear them.'
   

30

And he said,
      'No, father Abraham; 
      but if some one goes to them from the dead,
      they will repent.' 
   

31

He said to him,
      'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, 
      neither will they be convinced
      if some one should rise from the dead.'"
