Ezekiel

Ezekiel 33:10-11

10 “Therefore you, O son of man, say to the house of Israel: ‘Thus you say, “If our transgressions and our sins lie upon us, and we pine away in them, how can we then live?” ’ 11 Say to them: ‘As I live,’ says the Lord God, ‘I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn, turn from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’



God:

‘As surely as I live, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Why will you die, people of Israel?’

‘As I live, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that the wicked turn from his way and live. Turn back, change your way of thinking, turn back in repentance from your evil ways! For why should you die, O house of Israel?’
