Luke 16:19 - 31


16:19 - There was a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:

16:20 - And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores,

16:21 - And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.

16:22 - And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried;

16:23 - And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.

16:24 - And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.

16:25 - But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.

16:26 - And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence.

16:27 - Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father's house:

16:28 - For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment.

16:29 - Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.

16:30 - And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.

16:31 - And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
