Ezekiel Appointed as a Watchman and His Responsibility

1 And the word of Yahweh {came}a to me, {saying},b 2 "Son of man,c speak to {your people},d and you must say to them, 'A land, if I bring over it a sword and the people of the land take a man, one from their number, and they appoint him for them as a watchman, 3 and he sees the sword coming against the land, and he blows on the horn and he warns the people, 4 and {anyone who listens}e hears the sound of the horn and {he does not take warning}f and [the] sword comes and it takes him, his blood will be on his [own] head. 5 [For] he heard the sound of the horn and he did not take warning; his blood will be on him. But [if] he took warning, he saved his life. 6 And [as for] the watchman, if he sees the sword coming and {he does not blow}g the horn, and the people [are] not warned, and [the] sword comes and it takes {their lives},h he will be taken through his guilt, but his blood from the hand of the watchman I will seek.'
