The LORD's word came to me:
What do you mean by this proverb of yours about the land of Israel: "When parents eat unripe grapes, the children's teeth suffer"?
As surely as I live, says the LORD God, no longer will you use this proverb in Israel!
All lives are mine; the life of the parent and the life of the child belong to me. Only the one who sins will die.
People are declared innocent when they act justly and responsibly.
They don't eat on the hills or give their attention to the idols of the house of Israel. They don't defile the wives of their neighbors or approach menstruating women.
They don't cheat anyone, but fulfill their obligations. They don't rob others, but give food to the hungry and clothes to the naked.
