1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, what mean ye by this parable among the children of Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten unripe grapes, and the children’s teeth have been set on edge? 3 [As] I live, saith the Lord, surely this parable shall no more be spoken in Israel. 4 For all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son, they are mine: the soul that sins, it shall die. 5 But the man who shall be just, who executes judgment and righteousness, 6 who shall not eat upon the mountains, and shall not at all lift up his eyes to the devices of the house of Israel, and shall not defile his neighbor’s wife, and shall not draw nigh to her that is removed, 7 and shall not oppress any man, [but] shall return the pledge of the debtor, and shall be guilty of no plunder, shall give his bread to the hungry, and clothe the naked; 8 and shall not lend his money upon usury, and shall not receive usurious increase, and shall turn back his hand from injustice, shall execute righteous judgment between a man and his neighbor, 9 and has walked in my commandments and kept mine ordinances, to do them; he is righteous, he shall surely live, saith the Lord. 10 And if he beget a mischievous son, shedding blood and committing sins, 11 who has not walked in the way of his righteous father, but has even eaten upon the mountains, and has defiled his neighbor’s wife, 12 and has oppressed the poor and needy, and has committed robbery, and not restored a pledge, and has set his eyes upon idols, has wrought iniquities, 13 has lent upon usury, and taken usurious increase; he shall by no means live: he has wrought all these iniquities; he shall surely die; his blood shall be upon him. 14 And if he beget a son, and [the son] see all his father’s sins which he has wrought, and fear, and not do according to them, 15 and [if he] has not eaten on the mountains, and has not set his eyes on the devices of the house of Israel, and has not defiled his neighbor’s wife, 16 and has not oppressed a man, and has not retained the pledge, nor committed robbery, has given his bread to the hungry, and has clothed the naked, 17 and has turned back his hand from unrighteousness, has not received interest or usurious increase, has wrought righteousness, and walked in mine ordinances; he shall not die for the iniquities of his father, he shall surely live. 18 But if his father grievously afflict, or plunder, he has wrought enmity in the midst of my people, and shall die in his iniquity. 19 But ye will say, Why has not the son borne the iniquity of the father? Because the son has wrought judgment and mercy, has kept all my statues, and done them, he shall surely live. 20 But the soul that sins shall die: and the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, nor shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the iniquity of the transgressor shall be upon him. 21 And if the transgressor turn away from all his iniquities which he has committed, and keep all my commandments, and do justice and mercy, he shall surely live, and shall no means die. 22 None of his trespasses which he has committed shall be remembered: in his righteousness which he has done he shall live. 23 Shall I at all desire death of the sinner, saith he Lord, as I [desire] that he should turn from [his] evil way, and live? 24 But when the righteous man turns away from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, according to all the transgressions which the transgressor has wrought, none of his righteousness which he has wrought shall be at all remembered: in his trespass wherein he has trespassed, and in his sins wherein he has sinned, in them shall he die. 25 Yet ye have said, The way of the Lord is not straight. Hear now, all the house of Israel; will not my way be straight? Is your way straight? 26 When the righteous turns away from his righteousness and commits a trespass, and dies in the trespass he has committed, he shall [even] die in it. 27 And when the wicked man turns away from his wickedness that he has committed, and shall do judgment and justice, he has kept his soul, 28 and has turned away from all his ungodliness which he has committed: he shall surely live, he shall not die. 29 Yet the house of Israel say, The way of the Lord is not right. Is not my way right, O house of Israel? is not your way wrong? 30 I will judge you, O house of Israel, saith the Lord, each one according to his way: be converted, and turn from all your ungodliness, and it shall not become to you the punishment of iniquity. 31 Cast away from yourselves all your ungodliness wherein ye have sinned against me; and make to yourselves a new heart and a new spirit: for why should ye die, O house of Israel? 32 For I desire not the death of him that dies, saith the Lord. ΚΑΙ ἐγένετο λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 2 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, τί ὑμῖν ἡ παραβολὴ αὕτη ἐν τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραὴλ λέγοντες· οἱ πατέρες ἔφαγον ὄμφακα καὶ οἱ ὀδόντες τῶν τέκνων ἐγομφίασαν; 3 ζῶ ἐγώ, λέγει Κύριος, ἐὰν γένηται ἔτι λεγομένη ἡ παραβολὴ αὕτη ἐν τῷ ᾿Ισραήλ· 4 ὅτι πᾶσαι αἱ ψυχαὶ ἐμαί εἰσιν, ὃν τρόπον ἡ ψυχὴ τοῦ πατρός, οὕτως καὶ ἡ ψυχὴ τοῦ υἱοῦ, ἐμαί εἰσιν· ἡ ψυχὴ ἡ ἁμαρτάνουσα, αὕτη ἀποθανεῖται. - 5 ῾Ο δὲ ἄνθρωπος ὃς ἔσται δίκαιος, ὁ ποιῶν κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην, 6 ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων οὐ φάγεται καὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ ἐπάρῃ πρὸς τὰ ἐνθυμήματα οἴκου ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ οὐ μὴ μιάνῃ καὶ πρὸς γυναῖκα ἐν ἀφέδρῳ οὖσαν οὐ προσεγγιεῖ 7 καὶ ἄνθρωπον οὐ μὴ καταδυναστεύσῃ, ἐνεχυρασμὸν ὀφείλοντος ἀποδώσει καὶ ἅρπαγμα οὐχ ἁρπᾶται, τὸν ἄρτον αὐτοῦ τῷ πεινῶντι δώσει καὶ γυμνὸν περιβαλεῖ 8 καὶ τὸ ἀργύριον αὐτοῦ ἐπὶ τόκῳ οὐ δώσει καὶ πλεονασμὸν οὐ λήψεται καὶ ἐξ ἀδικίας ἀποστρέψει τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ, κρίμα δίκαιον ποιήσει ἀνὰ μέσον ἀνδρὸς καὶ ἀνὰ μέσον τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ 9 καὶ τοῖς προστάγμασί μου πεπόρευται καὶ τὰ δικαιώματά μου πεφύλακται τοῦ ποιῆσαι αὐτά· δίκαιος οὗτός ἐστι, ζωῇ ζήσεται, λέγει Κύριος. - 10 Καὶ ἐὰν γεννήσῃ υἱὸν λοιμὸν ἐκχέοντα αἷμα καὶ ποιοῦντα ἁμαρτήματα, 11 ἐν τῇ ὁδῷ τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ τοῦ δικαίου οὐκ ἐπορεύθη, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων ἔφαγε καὶ τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ ἐμίανε 12 καὶ πτωχὸν καὶ πένητα κατεδυνάστευσε καὶ ἅρπαγμα ἥρπασε καὶ ἐνεχυρασμὸν οὐκ ἀπέδωκε καὶ εἰς τὰ εἴδωλα ἔθετο τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ, ἀνομίαν πεποίηκε, 13 μετὰ τόκου ἔδωκε καὶ πλεονασμὸν ἔλαβεν, οὗτος ζωῇ οὐ ζήσεται, πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας ταύτας ἐποίησε, θανάτῳ θανατωθήσεται, τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν ἔσται. - 14 ᾿Εὰν δὲ γεννήσῃ υἱόν, καὶ ἴδῃ πάσας τὰς ἁμαρτίας τοῦ πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ἃς ἐποίησε, καὶ φοβηθῇ καὶ μὴ ποιήσῃ κατ᾿ αὐτάς, 15 ἐπὶ τῶν ὀρέων οὐ βέβρωκε καὶ τοὺς ὀφθαλμοὺς αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἔθετο εἰς τὰ ἐνθυμήματα οἴκου ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ τὴν γυναῖκα τοῦ πλησίον αὐτοῦ οὐκ ἐμίανε 16 καὶ ἄνθρωπον οὐ κατεδυνάστευσε καὶ ἐνεχυρασμὸν οὐκ ἐνεχύρασε καὶ ἅρπαγμα οὐχ ἥρπασε, τὸν ἄρτον αὐτοῦ τῷ πεινῶντι ἔδωκε καὶ γυμνὸν περιέβαλε, 17 καὶ ἀπὸ ἀδικίας ἀπέστρεψε τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ, τόκον οὐδὲ πλεονασμὸν οὐκ ἔλαβε, δικαιοσύνην ἐποίησε καὶ ἐν τοῖς προστάγμασί μου ἐπορεύθη, οὐ τελευτήσει ἐν ἀδικίαις πατρὸς αὐτοῦ, ζωῇ ζήσεται. 18 ὁ δὲ πατὴρ αὐτοῦ ἐὰν θλίψει θλίψῃ καὶ ἁρπάσῃ ἅρπαγμα, ἐναντία ἐποίησεν ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ λαοῦ μου καὶ ἀποθανεῖται ἐν τῇ ἀδικίᾳ αὐτοῦ. - 19 Καὶ ἐρεῖτε· τί ὅτι οὐκ ἔλαβε τὴν ἀδικίαν ὁ υἱὸς τοῦ πατρός; ὅτι ὁ υἱὸς δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἔλεος πεποίηκε, πάντα τὰ νόμιμά μου συνετήρησε καὶ ἐποίησεν αὐτά· ζωῇ ζήσεται. 20 ἡ δὲ ψυχὴ ἡ ἁμαρτάνουσα ἀποθανεῖται· ὁ δὲ υἱὸς οὐ λήψεται τὴν ἀδικίαν τοῦ πατρός, οὐδὲ ὁ πατὴρ λήψεται τὴν ἀδικίαν τοῦ υἱοῦ· δικαιοσύνη δικαίου ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν ἔσται, καὶ ἀνομία ἀνόμου ἐπ᾿ αὐτὸν ἔσται. 21 καὶ ὁ ἄνομος ἐὰν ἀποστρέψῃ ἐκ πασῶν τῶν ἀνομιῶν αὐτοῦ, ὧν ἐποίησε, καὶ φυλάξηται πάσας τὰς ἐντολάς μου καὶ ποιήσῃ δικαιοσύνην καὶ ἔλεος, ζωῇ ζήσεται καὶ οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃ. 22 πάντα τὰ παραπτώματα αὐτοῦ, ὅσα ἐποίησεν, οὐ μνησθήσεται, ἐν τῇ δικαιοσύνῃ αὐτοῦ, ᾗ ἐποίησε, ζήσεται. 23 μὴ θελήσει θελήσω τὸν θάνατον τοῦ ἀνόμου, λέγει Κύριος, ὡς τὸ ἀποστρέψαι αὐτὸν ἐκ τῆς ὁδοῦ τῆς πονηρᾶς καὶ ζῆν αὐτόν; 24 ἐν δὲ τῷ ἀποστρέψαι δίκαιον ἐκ τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιῆσαι ἀδικίαν κατὰ πάσας τὰς ἀνομίας, ἃς ἐποίησεν ὁ ἄνομος, πᾶσαι αἱ δικαιοσύναι αὐτοῦ, ἃς ἐποίησεν, οὐ μὴ μνησθῶσιν· ἐν τῷ παραπτώματι αὐτοῦ, ᾧ παρέπεσε, καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις αὐτοῦ, αἷς ἥμαρτεν, ἐν αὐταῖς ἀποθανεῖται. 25 καὶ εἴπατε· οὐ κατευθύνει ἡ ὁδὸς Κυρίου. ἀκούσατε δὴ πᾶς ὁ οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ· μὴ ἡ ὁδός μου οὐ κατευθύνει; οὐχὶ ἡ ὁδὸς ὑμῶν οὐ κατευθύνει; 26 ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέψαι τὸν δίκαιον ἐκ τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσει παράπτωμα καὶ ἀποθάνῃ, ἐν τῷ παραπτώματι, ᾧ ἐποίησεν, ἐν αὐτῷ ἀποθανεῖται. 27 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέψαι ἄνομον ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας αὐτοῦ, ἧς ἐποίησε, καὶ ποιήσει κρίμα καὶ δικαιοσύνην, οὗτος τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτοῦ ἐφύλαξε 28 καὶ ἀπέστρεψεν ἐκ πασῶν τῶν ἀσεβειῶν αὐτοῦ, ὧν ἐποίησε, ζωῇ ζήσεται, οὐ μὴ ἀποθάνῃ. 29 καὶ λέγουσιν ὁ οἶκος τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ· οὐ κατορθοῖ ἡ ὁδὸς Κυρίου. μὴ ἡ ὁδός μου οὐ κατορθοῖ, οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ; οὐχὶ ἡ ὁδὸς ὑμῶν οὐ κατορθοῖ; 30 ἕκαστον κατὰ τὴν ὁδὸν αὐτοῦ κρινῶ ὑμᾶς, οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ, λέγει Κύριος. ἐπιστράφητε καὶ ἀποστρέψατε ἐκ πασῶν τῶν ἀσεβειῶν ὑμῶν, καὶ οὐκ ἔσονται ὑμῖν εἰς κόλασιν ἀδικίας. 31 ἀπορρίψατε ἀφ᾿ ἑαυτῶν πάσας τὰς ἀσεβείας ὑμῶν, ἃς ἠσεβήσατε εἰς ἐμὲ καὶ ποιήσατε ἑαυτοῖς καρδίαν καινὴν καὶ πνεῦμα καινόν· καὶ ἱνατί ἀποθνήσκετε, οἶκος ᾿Ισραήλ; 32 διότι οὐ θέλω τὸν θάνατον τοῦ ἀποθνήσκοντος, λέγει Κύριος.
