How about this? Most versions make it appear that two instances of
"you" in verse 26 are referring to Abraham, thus it is not readily
apparent that Abraham represents a group or class of people.
Luke 16:25 "But Abraham said, 'Child, remember that during your
life you received your good things, and likewise Lazarus bad
things; but now he is being comforted here, and you [SU] are
in agony. 26 'And besides all this, between us and you [hUMWN]
there is a great chasm fixed, so that those who wish to come
over from here to you [hUMAS] will not be able, and that none
may cross over from there to us.' (NASB)
