"Son of man, I have made you a watchman1 for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.218
When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,3' and you do not warn him or speak out to dissuade him from his evil ways in order to save his life, that wicked man will die fora his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood.419
But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn5 from his wickedness6 or from his evil ways, he will die7 for his sin; but you will have saved yourself.820
"Again, when a righteous man turns9 from his righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block10 before him, he will die. Since you did not warn him, he will die for his sin. The righteous things he did will not be remembered, and I will hold you accountable for his blood.1121
But if you do warn the righteous man not to sin and he does not sin, he will surely live because he took warning, and you will have saved yourself.12"
