Ezekiel 18:16-17

Context
18:16 does not oppress anyone or keep what has been given in pledge, does not commit robbery, gives his food to the hungry, and clothes the naked, 18:17 refrains from wrongdoing, 1  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; 2  he will surely live.

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

2 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.”
