CJB 1 The word of ADONAI came to me: NIV 1 The word of the LORD came to me: CJB 2 "What does it mean, that you keep quoting this proverb in the land of Isra'el 'When parents eat sour grapes, their children's teeth are set on edge'? NIV 2 "What do you people mean by quoting this proverb about the land of Israel: " 'The fathers eat sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge'? CJB 3 "As I live," says Adonai ELOHIM, "I swear that you will never again quote this proverb in Isra'el. NIV 3 "As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, you will no longer quote this proverb in Israel. CJB 4 Look, all lives belong to me - both the parent's life and the child's life are equally mine - so it is the person who sins, himself, who must die. NIV 4 For every living soul belongs to me, the father as well as the son--both alike belong to me. The soul who sins is the one who will die. CJB 5 "Consider someone who is righteous, who does what is lawful and right. NIV 5 "Suppose there is a righteous man who does what is just and right. CJB 6 He doesn't eat on the mountains or raise his eyes toward the idols of the house of Isra'el; he doesn't defile his neighbor's wife or touch a woman during her time of menstrual impurity; NIV 6 He does not eat at the mountain shrines or look to the idols of the house of Israel. He does not defile his neighbor's wife or lie with a woman during her period.
