33:1 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
33:6 But if the watchman sees the sword come, and doesn`t blow the trumpet, and the people aren`t warned, and the sword comes, and take any person from among them; he is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at the watchman`s hand.
33:7 So you, son of man, I have set you a watchman to the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
33:8 When I tell the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die, and you don`t speak to warn the wicked from his way; that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at your hand.
33:10 You, son of man, tell the house of Israel: Thus you speak, saying, Our transgressions and our sins are on us, and we pine away in them; how then can we live?
33:11 Tell them, As I live, says the Lord Yahweh, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn you, turn you from your evil ways; for why will you die, house of Israel?
33:12 You, son of man, tell the children of your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his disobedience; and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turns from his wickedness; neither shall he who is righteous be able to live thereby in the day that he sins.
33:13 When I tell the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his righteousness, and commit iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered; but in his iniquity that he has committed, therein shall he die.
33:14 Again, when I say to the wicked, You shall surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
33:15 if the wicked restore the pledge, give again that which he had taken by robbery, walk in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
33:16 None of his sins that he has committed shall be remembered against him: he has done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
33:17 Yet the children of your people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
33:18 When the righteous turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, he shall even die therein.
33:19 When the wicked turns from his wickedness, and does that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
33:20 Yet you say, The way of the Lord is not equal. House of Israel, I will judge you everyone after his ways.
33:22 Now the hand of Yahweh had been on me in the evening, before he who was escaped came; and he had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more mute.
33:23 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
33:27 Thus shall you tell them, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: As I live, surely those who are in the waste places shall fall by the sword; and him who is in the open field will I give to the animals to be devoured; and those who are in the strongholds and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
33:30 As for you, son of man, the children of your people talk of you by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, everyone to his brother, saying, Please come and hear what is the word that comes forth from Yahweh.
33:31 They come to you as the people comes, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear your words, but don`t do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their gain.
33:33 When this comes to pass, (behold, it comes,) then shall they know that a prophet has been among them.
