It came to pass that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom; and the rich man also died, and was buried. In Hades he raised his eyes from him, being in torments and saw Abraham from afar, and Lazarus in his bosom.

But Abraham said to him: Son, remember that you received your goods in life, and Lazarus, evils; but now he is comforted here, and you tormented. In addition to all this, a great chasm is placed between us and you, so that those who want to cross from here to you cannot, nor can they cross here from there.
