Luke 16:25-26

Context
16:25 But Abraham said, ‘Child, 1  remember that in your lifetime you received your good things and Lazarus likewise bad things, but now he is comforted here and you are in anguish. 2  16:26 Besides all this, 3  a great chasm 4  has been fixed between us, 5  so that those who want to cross over from here to you cannot do so, and no one can cross from there to us.’

1 tn The Greek term here is τέκνον (teknon), which could be understood as a term of endearment.

2 tn Or “in terrible pain” (L&N 24.92). Here is the reversal Jesus mentioned in Luke 6:20-26.

3 tn Grk “And in all these things.” There is no way Lazarus could carry out this request even if divine justice were not involved.

4 sn The great chasm between heaven and hell is impassable forever. The rich man’s former status meant nothing now.

5 tn Grk “between us and you.”
