 23 And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torment, and saw Abraham far off, and Lazarus in his bosom. [Most Bibles say Lazarus, who was being tormented in agony in the fire, was in Hades, the place of the dead. According to the Net Bible, "The Greek term Hades stands for the Hebrew concept of Sheol. It is what is called hell today."]
