a certain rich man, which was clothed in purple and fine linen, and fared sumptuously every day:  And a certain beggar named Lazarus, was laid at his gate, full of sores,  And desiring to be fed with which fell from the rich man's table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores.  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;  And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom.  And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool tongue; for I am tormented in flame.  But Abraham said, Son, that thou in lifetime receivedst good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented.  And all between and a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass to cannot; neither can they pass to that would come from thence.  Then he said, I pray therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to father's house:  For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, also come into place of torment.  Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.  And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent.  And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.
