Lexham English Bible, Ezekiel 33
2 ‚ÄúSon of man, speak to your people, and you must say to them, ‚ÄėA land, if I bring over it a sword and the people of the land take a man, one from their number, and they appoint him for them as a watchman,
6 And as for the watchman, if he sees the sword coming and he does not blow the horn, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and it takes their lives, he will be taken through his guilt, but his blood from the hand of the watchman I will seek.‚Äô
8 When I say to the wicked, ‚ÄėWicked one, you will certainly die,‚Äô and you did not speak to warn the wicked from his way, he, the wicked, will die by his guilt, but his blood I will seek from your hand.
10 ‚ÄúAnd you, son of man, say to the house of Israel, saying, ‚ÄėSo you said, saying, ‚ÄúIndeed, our transgressions and our sins are on us, and because of them we are rotting, and how can we live?‚ÄĚ¬†‚Äô
11 Say to them, ‚Äė As I live,‚Äô declares the Lord Yahweh, ‚Äė Surely I have no delight in the death of the wicked, except in the wicked returning from his way, and he lives. Turn back! Turn back from your ways, O evil ones, for why should you die, house of Israel?‚Äô
12 ‚ÄúSo you, son of man, say to your people that the righteousness of the righteous shall not save him in the day of his transgression, and the wickedness of the wicked will not cause him to stumble on the day of his returning from his wickedness; and the righteous will not be able to live by it on the day when he returns to his sin.
13 When I say to the righteous, ‚ÄėCertainly he will live,‚Äô and he trusted in his righteousness, and he turns and he does injustice, all of his righteousness will not be remembered, and because of his injustice that he did, because of it he will die.
22 And the hand of Yahweh was on me on the evening before the coming of the survivor, and he opened my mouth before the survivor came to me in the morning, and my mouth was opened, and I was no longer dumb.
24 ‚ÄúSon of man, the inhabitants of these ruins on the soil of Israel are saying, ‚ÄėAbraham was one man, and he took possession of the land, and we are many; the land has been given for us as a possession.‚Äô
27 ‚ÄúThus you must say to them, ‚ÄėThus says the Lord Yahweh: ‚Äú As I live, surely whoever is in the ruins, by the sword they will fall, and whoever is on the surface of the open field, I will give him to the animals to eat him, and whoever is in the stronghold and in the cave, they will die by the plague.
30 ‚ÄúAnd you, son of man, your people, the ones talking together concerning you beside the walls and in the doorways of the houses, each one with his brother saying, ‚ÄėPlease come and hear what is the word that is going out from Yahweh.‚Äô
31 And they come to you as people do, and they sit before you, and my people hear your words, and they do not do them, for they are showing passion in their mouth, but their heart is going after ill-gotten gain.
