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.
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.”
