33:12 “And you, son of man, say to your people, 1 ‘The righteousness of the righteous will not deliver him if he rebels. 2 As for the wicked, his wickedness will not make him stumble if he turns from it. 3 The righteous will not be able to live by his righteousness 4 if he sins.’ 5 33:13 Suppose I tell the righteous that he will certainly live, but he becomes confident in his righteousness and commits iniquity. None of his righteous deeds will be remembered; because of the iniquity he has committed he will die.
33:18 When a righteous man turns from his godliness and commits iniquity, he will die for it.
