How lovely is your dwelling place, Lord Almighty! Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked... For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor.
Psalm 84

The Parable of The Rich Man and Lazarus

Luke 16:19-31

My Sermon Notes from December 8, 2019 Full Text: Luke 16:19-31

19 「有一個財主,穿著紫色袍和細麻布衣服,天天奢華宴樂。 20 又有
一個討飯的名叫拉撒路,渾身生瘡,被人放在財主門口, 21 要得財主
桌子上掉下來的零碎充飢,並且狗來舔他的瘡。22 後來那討飯的死了,
被天使帶去放在亞伯拉罕的懷裡。財主也死了,並且埋葬了。 23 他在
陰間受痛苦,舉目遠遠地望見亞伯拉罕,又望見拉撒路在他懷裡,24 就
點水,涼涼我的舌頭,因為我在這火焰裡極其痛苦。』25 亞伯拉罕說:
安慰,你倒受痛苦。 26 不但這樣,並且在你我之間有深淵限定,以致
的。』27 財主說:『我祖啊,既是這樣,求你打發拉撒路到我父家去,
28 因為我還有五個弟兄,他可以對他們作見證,免得他們也來到這痛
苦的地方。』29 亞伯拉罕說:『他們有摩西和先知的話可以聽從。』30
那裡去的,他們必要悔改。』 31 亞伯拉罕說:『若不聽從摩西和先知
19 “There was a rich man who was dressed in purple and fine linen and lived in luxury every
day. 20 At his gate was laid a beggar named Lazarus, covered with sores 21 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 beggar 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 Lazarus by his side. 24 So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have
pity on me and send Lazarus 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 Lazarus 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 Lazarus
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.’”
(路加福音 Luke 16:19-31)
