Woe to the wicked! Disaster is upon them! They will be paid back for what their hands have done.
For everyone belongs to me, the parent as well as the child--both alike belong to me. The one who sins is the one who will die.
The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.
