(23. Sunday in Ordinary Time)
IF YOU DO NOT SPEAK TO THE WICKED MAN, I WILL HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS DEATH.
So thou, O son of man, I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel: therefore thou shalt hear the word from my mouth, and thou shalt tell it from me.
When I say to the wicked: O wicked man, thou shalt surely die: if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked man from his way: that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at thy hand.
But if thou tell the wicked man, that he may be converted from his ways, and he be not converted from his way: he shall die in his iniquity: but thou hast delivered thy soul.
V. The word of the Lord.
R. Thanks be to God.
