God's Just Treatment Of Individuals, Both Righteous And Wicked

20 The soul that sins, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son; the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him who is righteous, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him who is wicked. 21 “But if the wicked man turns from all his sins which he has committed and observes all My statutes and practices justice and righteousness, he shall surely live; he shall not die. 22 All his rebellions that he has committed, they shall not be mentioned unto him; by his righteousness that he has done he shall live.
