The Rich Man and Lázaro
19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in Brioni suits and Vacheron Constantin watches and lived in luxury every day. 20 At the gate of the White House was laid a refugee named Lázaro, covered with gunshots and longing to eat what fell from the rich man’s table. Even the dogs came and licked his sores.
22 “The time came when the refugee died and the angels carried him to Abraham’s side. The rich man also died and was buried. 23 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lázaro by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lázaro to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’
25 “But Abraham replied, ‘Son, remember that in your lifetime you received your good things, while Lázaro received bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in agony. 26 And besides all this, between us and you a great chasm has been set in place, so that those who want to go from here to you cannot, nor can anyone cross over from there to us.’
27 “He answered, ‘Then I beg you, father, send Lázaro to my family, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him warn them, so that they will not also come to this place of torment.’
29 “Abraham replied, ‘They have Moses and the Prophets; let them listen to them.’
30 “‘No, father Abraham,’ he said, ‘but if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent.’
31 “He said to him, ‘If they do not listen to Moses and the Prophets, they will not be convinced even if someone rises from the dead.’” Luke 16: 19-31 (Chicano Contemporary Version)
