MSTC(i) 11 Tell them, 'As truly as I live, sayeth the LORD God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but much rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn you, turn you from your ungodly ways, O ye of the house of Israel. Oh, wherefore will ye die?' 12 Thou son of man, tell the children of thy people, 'The righteousness of the righteous shall not save him, whensoever he turneth away unfaithfully. Again, the wickedness of the wicked shall not hurt him, whensoever he converteth from his ungodliness. And the righteousness of the righteous, shall not save his life, whensoever he sinneth. 13 If I say unto the righteous, that he shall surely live, and so he trust to his own righteousness, and do sin: then shall his righteousnesses be no more thought upon, but in the wickedness that he hath done he shall die. 14 Again; If I say unto the wicked, 'Thou shalt surely die,' and so he turn from his sins, and do the thing that is lawful and right: 15 Insomuch that the same wicked man giveth the pledge again, restoreth that he had taken away by robbery, walketh in the commandments of life, and doth no wrong: Then shall he surely live, and not die. 16 Yea the sins that he hath done, shall never be thought upon: For insomuch as he doth now the thing that is lawful and right, he shall live. 17 And yet the children of thy people say, 'Tush, the way of the LORD is not right,' whereas their own way is rather unright. 18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and doeth the thing that is wicked, he shall die therefore. 19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, doing the thing that is lawful and right, he shall live therefore. 20 Yet ye say, 'The way of the LORD is not equal.' O ye house of Israel, I will judge every one of you after his ways!'"
