When I say to a wicked man, 'You will surely die,1' 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.219
But if you do warn the wicked man and he does not turn3 from his wickedness4 or from his evil ways, he will die5 for his sin; but you will have saved yourself.620
"Again, when a righteous man turns7 from his righteousness and does evil, and I put a stumbling block8 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.921
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.10"
