Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 16:24

_ _ Father Abraham — a well-founded, but unavailing, claim of natural descent (Luke 3:8; John 8:37).

_ _ mercy on me — who never showed any (James 2:3).

_ _ send Lazarus — the pining victim of his merciless neglect.

_ _ that he may — take me hence? No; that he dares not to ask.

_ _ dip ... tongue — that is the least conceivable and the most momentary abatement of his torment; that is all. But even this he is told is (1) unreasonable.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 16:19-31.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 16:24

Father Abraham, have mercy on me — It cannot be denied, but here is one precedent in Scripture of praying to departed saints: but who is it that prays, and with what success? Will any, who considers this, be fond of copying after him?
