Ezekiel 14:14-20 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
14 even if these three men--Noah,1 Daniela2 and Job3--were in it, they could save only themselves by their righteousness,4 declares the Sovereign LORD. 15 "Or if I send wild beasts5 through that country and they leave it childless and it becomes desolate so that no one can pass through it because of the beasts,6 16 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved, but the land would be desolate.7 17 "Or if I bring a sword8 against that country and say, 'Let the sword pass throughout the land,' and I kill its men and their animals,9 18 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if these three men were in it, they could not save their own sons or daughters. They alone would be saved. 19 "Or if I send a plague into that land and pour out my wrath10 upon it through bloodshed,11 killing its men and their animals,12 20 as surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, even if Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, they could save neither son nor daughter. They would save only themselves by their righteousness.13
