"Fared sumptuously" (Luke 16:19)—The Greek word rendered "fared" means, literally, "was glad, was merry, rejoiced," though it was sometimes used in the sense of "lived"; while "lampros" (sumptuously) can also be rendered "splendidly, magnificently." Goodspeed translates: "Used to . . . live in luxury every day" (cf. Thayer: Greek Lexicon, pp. 263, 371).
"[He] . . . was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom" (Luke 16:22; cf. verse 23)—Godet notes that this figure of speech, which was a common one among the Jews, "denotes intimate communion in general (John 1:18), or more specially the place of honour at a feast." (Commentary on Luke: Vol. II, p. 177.) Compare the incident in John 13:23, where the beloved disciple is said to have learned "on Jesus' bosom" during the course of the last supper.
