Ezekiel 18:27-32

EJ2000(i) 27 Again, when the wicked man leaves his wickedness that he has committed and lives according to judgment and righteousness, he shall cause his soul to live. 28 Because he saw and left all his rebellions that he has committed, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 29 If even now the house of Israel should say, The way of the Lord is not straight. O house of Israel, are not my ways straight? Certainly your ways are not straight. 30 ¶ Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, each one according to his ways, said the Lord GOD. Repent and turn yourselves from all your iniquities, so iniquity shall not be your ruin. 31 Cast away from you all your iniquities by which ye have rebelled, and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit; for why will ye die, O house of Israel? 32 For I do not desire the death of him that dies, said the Lord GOD; therefore turn yourselves, and ye shall live.
