22 The poor man died and was carried by (A)the angels (B)to Abraham's side.[a] The rich man also died and was buried, 23 and in (C)Hades, being in torment, he lifted up his eyes and (D)saw Abraham far off and Lazarus (E)at his side. 24 And he called out, (F)‘Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus to dip the end of his finger in water and (G)cool my tongue, for (H)I am in anguish in this flame.’ 25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, remember that (I)you in your lifetime received your good things, and Lazarus in like manner bad things; but now he is comforted here, and you are in anguish. 26 And 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.’
