they also come to this place of torment. '   v 29 "But Abraham *said, 'They have Moses and the Prophets;   let them hear them.'    v 30 "But he said, 'No, Father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent!'   v 31 "But he said to him, 'If they do not listen to Moses and  the Prophets, neither will they be persuaded if someone rises from the dead.'"
