Ezekiel 33:9-11 Good News Translation (GNT)
9 If you do warn an evil person and he doesn't stop sinning, he will die, still a sinner, but your life will be spared.”
10 The Lord spoke to me. “Mortal man,” he said, “repeat to the Israelites what they are saying: ‘We are burdened with our sins and the wrongs we have done. We are wasting away. How can we live?’ 11 Tell them that as surely as I, the Sovereign Lord, am the living God, I do not enjoy seeing sinners die. I would rather see them stop sinning and live. Israel, stop the evil you are doing. Why do you want to die?
