None of the righteous things that person has done will be remembered. Because of the unfaithfulness they are guilty of and because of the sins they have committed, they will die.
"Therefore, son of man, say to your people, 'If someone who is righteous disobeys, that person's former righteousness will count for nothing.

"Yet your people say, 'The way of the Lord is not just.' But it is their way that is not just.
And if a wicked person turns away from their wickedness and does what is just and right, they will live by doing so.
