OUR DIRECTION FROM THE LORD


Ezekiel 3:17-21

 King James Version (easy read)


 17  "Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear the word out of My mouth, and give them warning from Me.

    18  When I say to the wicked, `You shall surely die,' and you did not give him not warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at your hand.

     19  Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your  soul.

    20  Again, when a righteous man turns from his righteousness and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die: Because you have not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

   
 21  Nevertheless if you warn the righteous man that the righteous sin not, and he does not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also you have delivered your soul."
