Ezek 33:1 And the word of יהוה (Yahweh) came to me, saying,
Ezek 33:2 “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and you shall say to them, ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land shall take a man from their borders and shall make him their watchman,
Ezek 33:3 and he sees the sword coming upon the land, and shall blow with the shophar and shall warn the people,
Ezek 33:4 then whoever shall hear the voice of the shophar and shall not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood is on his own head.
Ezek 33:5 He heard the voice of the shophar, but he did not take warning, his blood is on himself. But he who takes warning shall deliver his being.
Ezek 33:6 But if the watchman sees the sword coming and shall not blow with the shophar, and the people shall not be warned, and the sword comes and takes any being from among them, he is taken away in his crookedness, and his blood I require at the watchman’s hand.’
Ezek 33:7 “And you, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Yisra’ĕl. And you shall hear a word from My mouth and you shall warn them for Me.
Ezek 33:8 “When I say to the wrong, ‘O wrong one, you shall certainly die!’ and you have not spoken to warn the wrong from his way, that wrong one shall die in his crookedness, and his blood I require at your hand.
Ezek 33:9 “But when you have warned (a) the wrong to turn from his way, and he has not turned from his way, he shall die in his crookedness, but you have delivered your being. Footnote: a Similar messages in Eze 3:18-21, Eze 18:20-30.

Ezek 33:11 “Say to them, ‘As I live,’ declares the Master יהוה (Yahweh), ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wrong, but that the wrong turn from his way and live. Turn back, turn back from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Yisra’ĕl?’
Ezek 33:12 “And you, O son of man, say to the children of your people, ‘The righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him in the day of his transgression. And as for the wrongness of the wrong, he shall not stumble because of it in the day that he turns from his wrong. And the righteous shall not be able to live because of his righteousness in the day that he sins.’
Ezek 33:13 “When I say to the righteous that he shall live, and he has trusted in his righteousness, and shall do unrighteousness, none of his righteousness shall be remembered, but because of his unrighteousness that he has done, he shall die.
Ezek 33:14 “Again, when I say to the wrong, ‘You shall certainly die,’ if he turns from his sin and does right and righteousness,

Ezek 33:21 And it came to be in the twelfth year of our exile, in the tenth month, on the fifth of the new moon, that one who had escaped from Yerushalayim came to me and said, “The city has been stricken!”
Ezek 33:22 And the hand of יהוה (Yahweh) came upon me the evening before the man came who had escaped. And He had opened my mouth, before he came to me in the morning. And my mouth was opened. And I was no longer silent.
Ezek 33:23 Then the word of יהוה (Yahweh) came to me, saying,
Ezek 33:24 “Son of man, they who inhabit those ruins in the land of Yisra’ĕl are saying, ‘Aḇraham was only one, and he inherited the land. But we are many, let the land be given to us as a possession.’
Ezek 33:25 “Therefore say to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה (Yahweh), “You eat meat with blood, and you lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood. Should you then possess the land?
Ezek 33:26 “You depend on your sword, and you commit abominations, and each of you defiles his neighbour’s wife. Should you then possess the land?” ’
Ezek 33:27 “Say this to them, ‘Thus said the Master יהוה (Yahweh), “As I live, those who are in the ruins shall fall by the sword, and the one who is in the open field I shall give to the beasts to be devoured, and those who are in the strongholds and caves shall die of the pestilence.
Ezek 33:28 “And I shall make the land a desert and a waste, the arrogance of her strength shall cease, and the mountains of Yisra’ĕl shall be a waste, with none passing through.
