The Watchman's Message
Today's Passage: Ezekiel 33:10-17
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
(An Aside: Author - Ezekiel
Date Written - Around 571 BC)
10. "Son of man, give the people of Israel this message:
You are saying, 'Our sins are heavy upon us; we are wasting away!
How can we survive?'
11. As surely as I live, says the Sovereign LORD,
I take no pleasure in the death of wicked people.
I only want them to turn from their wicked ways
so they can live. Turn! Turn from your wickedness,
O people of Israel! Why should you die?
12. "Son of man, give your people this message:
The righteous behavior of righteous people will not save them
if they turn to sin, nor will the wicked behavior of wicked people
destroy them if they repent and turn from their sins.
13. When I tell righteous people that they will live,
but then they sin, expecting their past righteousness to save them,
then none of their righteous acts will be remembered.
I will destroy them for their sins.
14. And suppose I tell some wicked people that they will surely die,
but then they turn from their sins and do what is just and right.
15. For instance, they might give back a debtor's security,
return what they have stolen, and obey my life-giving laws,
no longer doing what is evil.
If they do this, then they will surely live and not die.
16. None of their past sins will be brought up again,
for they have done what is just and right, and they will surely live.
17. "Your people are saying, 'The Lord isn't doing what's right.
18. For again I say, when righteous people turn away from
their righteous behavior and turn to evil, they will die.
19. But if wicked people turn from their wickedness
and do what is just and right, they will live.
20. O people of Israel, you are saying,
'The Lord isn't doing what's right.'
But I judge each of you according to your deeds.
Ezekiel 33: 10-20 NLT
