Why Will You Die, Israel?

10 “And you, (A)son of man, say to the house of Israel, Thus have you said: ‘Surely our transgressions and our sins are upon us, and (B)we rot away because of them. (C)How then can we live?’ 11 Say to them, (D)As I live, declares the Lord God, (E)I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; (F)turn back, turn back from your evil ways, (G)for why will you die, O house of Israel?

12 (H)“And you, son of man, say to (I)your people, (J)The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him when he transgresses, (K)and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall by it when he turns from his wickedness, (L)and the righteous shall not be able to live by his righteousness[a] when he sins.
