Ezekiel Appointed As A Watchman And His Responsibility

13 When I say to the righteous man, that he shall surely live, if he trusts his righteousness, and commits iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered, but in his iniquity that he has committed, in it he shall die. 14 Again, when I say to the wicked man, Thou shall surely die, if he turns from his sin, and does that which is lawful and right, 15 if the wicked man restores the pledge, gives again that which he had taken by robbery, walks in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity, he shall surely live; he shall not die.
