Ezekiel 14:16 Parallel
CommentaryEzekiel 14:16 Parallel Commentaries
But God had listened to Abraham's request and kept Lot safe, removing him from the disaster that engulfed the cities on the plain.
The person who sins is the one who will die. The child will not be punished for the parent's sins, and the parent will not be punished for the child's sins. Righteous people will be rewarded for their own righteous behavior, and wicked people will be punished for their own wickedness.
