A broadside on the Parable of Lazarus, telling the story through one large and six small scenes. The cental scene has the rich man ('Dives') feasting while the beggar Larazus can be seen through the window, dogs licking his sores. Both men die: Lazarus is carried to heaven to be at Abraham's side; the rich man is dragged to hell where he spies Lazarus in Heaven and begs Abraham to send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool his tongue.
