"Son of man, I have made you a watchman over the house of Israel. When you hear a word from My mouth, give them a warning from Me.
Ezekiel 3:17 In-Context
I came to the exiles who lived at Tel Aviv near the Kebar River. And there, where they were living, I sat among them for seven days—deeply distressed.
At the end of seven days the word of the LORD came to me:
“Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the people of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me.
When I say to a wicked person, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn them or speak out to dissuade them from their evil ways in order to save their life, that wicked person will die for their sin, and I will hold you accountable for their blood.
But if you do warn the wicked person and they do not turn from their wickedness or from their evil ways, they will die for their sin; but you will have saved yourself.
