Ezekiel 18:1-6 NLT

1 Then another message came to me from the :
2 “Why do you quote this proverb concerning the land of Israel: ‘The parents have eaten sour grapes, but their children’s mouths pucker at the taste’?
3 As surely as I live, says the Sovereign , you will not quote this proverb anymore in Israel.
4 For all people are mine to judge—both parents and children alike. And this is my rule: The person who sins is the one who will die.
5 “Suppose a certain man is righteous and does what is just and right.
6 He does not feast in the mountains before Israel’s idolsa or worship them. He does not commit adultery or have intercourse with a woman during her menstrual period.
