16 Revised Standard Version Passage

19"There was a rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen and who feasted sumptuously every day.The parable of the Rich Man and Lazarus Lk.16.19-31 (Peraea)
20And at his gate lay a poor man named Laz'arus, full of sores, 
21who desired to be fed with what fell from the rich man's table; moreover the dogs came and licked his sores. 
22The poor man died and was carried by the angels to Abraham's bosom. The rich man also died and was buried; 
23and in Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes, and saw Abraham far off and Laz'arus in his bosom. 
24And he called out, 'Father Abraham, have mercy upon me, and send Laz'arus to dip the end of his finger in water and cool my tongue; for I am in anguish in this flame.' 
25But Abraham said, 'Son, remember that you in your lifetime received your good things, and Laz'arus in like manner evil things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 
26And 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.' 
27And he said, 'Then I beg you, father, to send him to my father's house, 
28for I have five brothers, so that he may warn them, lest they also come into this place of torment.' 
29But Abraham said, 'They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.' 
30And he said, 'No, father Abraham; but if some one goes to them from the dead, they will repent.' 
31He said to him, 'If they do not hear Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced if someone should rise from the dead.'"
