Ezekiel 18:23-25 Lexham English Bible (LEB)

23 Have I delight by any means[a] in the death of the wicked, declares[b] the Lord Yahweh, and not at his turning from his way, so that[c] he lives? 24 And when the righteous turns[d] from his righteousness, so that[e] he does injustice, and does all of the detestable things that the wicked do, then[f] will he live because of all of his righteousness[g] that he did? Those things will not be remembered because of his infidelity that he displayed, and because of his sin that he committed.[h] Through[i] them he shall die.

25 “Yet[j] you say, ‘The way of the Lord is not fair!’ Listen, now, house of Israel, is my way not fair? Is it not your ways that are not fair?
