Ezekiel 33:1-7 DBY

1 And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take one man from among them all, and set him for their watchman:
3 if he see the sword coming upon the land, and blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
4 then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning, a if the sword come and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.
