Ezekiel 18:8-9

18:8 does not engage in usury or charge interest, 1  but refrains 2  from wrongdoing, promotes true justice 3  between men, 18:9 and follows my statutes and observes my regulations by carrying them out. 4  That man 5  is righteous; he will certainly live, 6  declares the sovereign Lord.

Ezekiel 18:13

18:13 engages in usury and charges interest. Will he live? He will not! Because he has done all these abominable deeds he will certainly die. 7  He will bear the responsibility for his own death. 8 

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 The MT reads לַעֲשׂוֹת אֱמֶת (laasotemet, “to do with integrity”), while the LXX reads “to do them,” presupposing לַעֲשׂוֹת אֹתָם (laasototam). The ם (mem) and ת (tav) have been reversed in the MT. The LXX refelcts the original, supported by similar phrasing in Ezekiel 11:20; 20:19.

5 tn Heb “he.”

6 tn Heb “living, he will live.” The infinitive absolute precedes the finite verb for emphasis.

7 tn Heb “be put to death.” The translation follows an alternative reading that appears in several ancient textual witnesses.

8 tn Heb “his blood will be upon him.”
