Ezekiel 18:9-19

LITV(i) 9 He has walked in My statutes and has kept My judgments to deal truly; he is righteous. Surely he shall live, declares the Lord Jehovah. 10 And if he fathers a violent son, who sheds blood and does to a brother any of these:, 11 even if he does not do any of these himself : that also the son he has eaten on the mountains, and has defiled his neighbor's wife. 12 He has oppressed the poor and needy; thieving, he stole; he has not returned the pledge, and has lifted up his eyes to the idols, 13 he has loaned on interest and has taken increase; shall he also live? He shall not live. He has done all these abominations; he shall surely die; his blood shall be on him. 14 Now, behold, if he fathers a son who sees all his father's sins which he has done, and sees, and does not do like them; 15 he has not eaten on the mountains, and has not lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel; he has not defiled his neighbor's wife, 16 and has not oppressed a man, has not withheld the pledge, and has not robbed by robbery; he has given his bread to the hungry, and he has covered the naked with clothing, 17 has withdrawn his hand from the poor, and has not received interest and increase. He has done My judgments, has walked in My statutes. He shall not die for the iniquity of his father. He shall surely live. 18 His father, because he did extortion, robbed his brother by robbery, and did what is not good among his people, behold, even he shall die in his iniquity. 19 Yet you say, Why? Does not the son bear the iniquity of the father? When the son has done justice and righteousness, he has kept all My statutes and has done them, surely he shall live.
