Ezekiel 18:11-13 New English Translation (NET Bible)

11 (though the father did not do any of them).[a] He eats pagan sacrifices on the mountains,[b] defiles his neighbor’s wife, 12 oppresses the poor and the needy,[c] commits robbery, does not give back what was given in pledge, prays to[d] idols, performs abominable acts, 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.[e] He will bear the responsibility for his own death.[f]


  1. Ezekiel 18:11 tn Heb “and he all of these did not do.” The parenthetical note refers back to the father described in the preceding verses.
  2. Ezekiel 18:11 sn See note on “mountains” in v. 6.
  3. Ezekiel 18:12 sn The poor and needy are often mentioned together in the OT (Deut 24:14; Jer 22:16; Ezek 16:49; Pss 12:6; 35:10; 37:14).
  4. Ezekiel 18:12 tn Heb “lifts up his eyes.”
  5. Ezekiel 18:13 tn Heb “be put to death.” The translation follows an alternative reading that appears in several ancient textual witnesses.
  6. Ezekiel 18:13 tn Heb “his blood will be upon him.”
