Ezekiel 18:12-14 New English Translation (NET Bible)

12 oppresses the poor and the needy,[a] commits robbery, does not give back what was given in pledge, prays to[b] 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.[c] He will bear the responsibility for his own death.[d]

14 “But suppose he in turn has a son who notices all the sins his father commits, considers them, and does not follow his father’s example.[e]


  1. 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).
  2. Ezekiel 18:12 tn Heb “lifts up his eyes.”
  3. Ezekiel 18:13 tn Heb “be put to death.” The translation follows an alternative reading that appears in several ancient textual witnesses.
  4. Ezekiel 18:13 tn Heb “his blood will be upon him.”
  5. Ezekiel 18:14 tn Heb “and he sees and does not do likewise.”
