Once upon a time there was a rich man who dressed in fine clothes and there was also a poor man named Lazarus, all covered with sores, who was lying at the door of the rich man. He would have liked to be satisfied with what fell from the rich man's table, and even the dogs came to lick his sores.

The poor man died and was taken by angels to heaven and the rich man also died and was buried.

Being the rich man in hell he raised his eyes and saw Abraham in the distance with Lazarus on his lap. He then he shouted: "Father have mercy on me and send Lazarus to dip the tips of his fingers in water and refresh me because he torments me with these flames." Abraham replied: "Son, remember that you received your goods during life, while Lazarus received evil. Now he finds comfort here and you, on the other hand, torment". The other replied: "Then I beg you to send Lazarus to my father's house and to testify about him so that they too do not come to this torment, since they do not listen to Moses or the prophets."

The story tells that, in the last of Jesus' visits to Lazarus' house, Jesus arrives when Lazarus is already dead and buried. Then, Jesus opens the tomb, and at his order, Lazarus resurrects.

-Jesus, moved again, came to the tomb, which was a cave with a stone on top, and said to him: "Roll the stone away." Marta, the deceased's sister, replied: “Sir, it smells bad; He's been dead for four days now."

- Jesus said to him: «Have I not told you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?». Then the stone was rolled away, and Jesus, looking up to heaven, said, “Father, I thank you that you heard me.

I know that you always hear me, but I have told him for these people who surround me, so that they believe that you have sent me».

After saying this, he cried out in a loud voice: "LAZARUS, COME OUT!"
