And it came to pass at the end of sevendays, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying ,
17Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surelydie ; and thou givest him not warning , nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wickedway, to save his life ; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.19
Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wickedway, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.20Again , When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and commitiniquity, and I lay a stumblingblockbefore him, he shall die : because thou hast not given him warning , he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered ; but his blood will I require at thine hand.21
Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteoussin not, and he doth not sin , he shall surelylive , because he is warned ; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
