68But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, so that the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any one of them, 9that person is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at the watchman's hand.
813If I say to the wicked, O wicked one, you shall surely die, 14and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, 15that wicked person shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand.
Say to them, 22As I live, declares the Lord GOD, 23I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; 24turn back, turn back from your evil ways, 25for why will you die, O house of Israel?
1226"And you, son of man, say to 27your people, 28The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him when he transgresses, 29and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall by it when he turns from his wickedness, 30and the righteous shall not be able to live by his righteousnessa when he sins.
Though I say to the righteous that he shall surely live, yet 31if he trusts in his righteousness and does injustice, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered, but in his injustice that he has done he shall die.
2248Now 49the hand of the LORD had been upon me the evening before the fugitive came; and he had opened my mouth by the time the man came to me in the morning, so my mouth was opened, and I was no longer mute.
2450"Son of man, the inhabitants of these 51waste places in the land of Israel keep saying, 52'Abraham was only one man, yet he got possession of the land; but 53we are many; the land is surely given us to possess.'
Say this to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: 60As I live, surely those who are in 61the waste places shall fall by 62the sword, and whoever is in the open field I will give to 63the beasts to be devoured, and those who are in 64strongholds and in caves shall die by 65pestilence.
"As for you, 70son of man, 71your people who talk together about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses, say to one another, each to his brother, 'Come, and hear what the word is that comes from the LORD.'
3172And they come to you as people come, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear what you say but they will not do it; for 73with lustful talk in their mouths they act; their heart is set on their gain.
