27. Warning the Rich
19 Now there was 1a certain rich man, and he clothed himself in apurple and fine linen, making merry every day in splendor.
20 And a certain beggar named Lazarus was laid at his gate, covered with sores
21 And longing to be asatisfied with the things falling from the rich man's btable; moreover, even the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 And the beggar died, and he was carried away by the aangels into 1Abraham's bbosom; and the rich man also died and was buried.
23 And in 1aHades he lifted up his eyes, being in btorment, and saw Abraham from afar and Lazarus in his bosom.
24 And he called out and said, aFather Abraham, have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my btongue, because I am in anguish in this cflame.
25 But Abraham said, Child, remember that in your lifetime you fully received your good things, and Lazarus likewise bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish.
26 And besides all these things, between us and you a great 1chasm is fixed, so that those wanting to pass from here to you cannot, neither from there to us may any cross over.
27 And he said, Then I ask you, Father, to send him to the house of my father --
28 For I have five brothers -- so that he may solemnly testify to them, lest they also come to this place of torment.
29 But Abraham said, They have 1aMoses and the prophets; let them hear them.
30 But he said, No, Father Abraham; but if someone risen from the dead would go to them, they will repent.
31 But he said to him, If they do 1not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.
