Ezekiel 18:17

Context
18:17 refrains from wrongdoing, 4  does not engage in usury or charge interest, carries out my regulations and follows my statutes. He will not die for his father’s iniquity; 5  he will surely live.

1 sn This law was given in Lev 25:36.

2 tn Heb, “turns back his hand.”

3 tn Heb “justice of truth.”

4 tc This translation follows the LXX. The MT reads “restrains his hand from the poor,” which makes no sense here.

5 tn Or “in his father’s punishment.” The phrase “in/for [a person’s] iniquity/punishment” occurs fourteen times in Ezekiel: here and in vv. 18, 19, 20; 3:18, 19; 4:17; 7:13, 16; 24:23; 33:6, 8, 9; 39:23. The Hebrew word for “iniquity” may also mean the “punishment for iniquity.”
