The Rich Man And Lazarus

And the person who marries someone who has been divorced by her husband commits sexual sin with her [i.e., because she is still rightfully married to her first husband]. 19 "Now there was a certain rich man who was dressed in purple [clothing] and soft linen [garments] and who lived every day in pleasure and luxury. 20 And a certain beggar named Lazarus, who was full of sores, was laid at the rich man's doorway.
