Ezekiel 18:22

Ezekiel 18:22

All his transgressions that he hath committed
Before his repentance, conversion, and obedience: they shall not be mentioned unto him;
they shall not be charged upon his conscience, or brought against him in providence; he shall not be upbraided with them, or punished for them; but they shall be forgiven him, at least in such sense as to prevent temporal calamity and ruin: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live;
he shall live "in" it, though not "for" it; this will be the fruit and consequence of his obedience and righteousness, that he shall live and not die, in the sense that has been already given, according to the tenor of the law, ( Leviticus 18:5 ) .
