10 “And you, son of man,[a] say to the house of Israel, saying,[b] ‘So you said, saying,[c] “Indeed, our transgressions and our sins are on us, and because of them we are rotting, and how can we live?”’ 11 Say to them, ‘As I live,’[d] declares[e] the Lord Yahweh, ‘Surely I have no delight[f] in the death of the wicked, except[g] in the wicked returning from his way, and he lives. Turn back! Turn back from your ways, O evil ones, for why should you die, house of Israel?’

12 “So[h] you, son of man,[i] say to your people[j] that the righteousness of the righteous shall not save him in the day of his transgression, and the wickedness of the wicked will not cause him to stumble[k] on the day of his returning from his wickedness; and the righteous will not be able to live by it on the day when he returns to his sin.
