YAHWEH’s Watchmen

March 6, 2024

Ezekiel 33:1-9 in the Charles Thomson English Version of the Septuagint (1808):

AGAIN a word of the LORD came to me (Ezekiel), saying, Son of man speak to the children of thy people and thou shalt say to them, with regard to a land on which I am about to bring a sword, when the people of that land take a man, one of themselves, and make him their watchman; IF he upon seeing the sword coming against the land, sound the trumpet and warn the people; and he who heareth the trumpet doth not take warning; and the sword cometh and cutteth him off; his blood shall be on his own head.  Because upon hearing the sound of the trumpet he did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself; for had he taken warning he might have saved his life.  But IF the watchman, upon seeing the sword coming, doth NOT sound the trumpet, and the people are NOT warned, and the sword cometh and taketh the life of any of them; that person is taken off because of his iniquity; BUT his blood I will require at the watchman’s hands.

Now, as for thee son of man, I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel, therefore thou shalt hear a word from My mouth.  When I say to the sinner, Thou shalt die: IF thou dost NOT speak to warn the wicked from his way; that unrighteous man shall die for his iniquity; but his blood I will require at thy hand.  But IF thou forewarn the wicked of his way to turn him from it; and he turn NOT from it, he shall die for his wickedness and thou hast delivered thy soul.

THE WORD OF YAHWEH TO EZEKIEL AND TO US TODAY! 

WILL YOU BE A WATCHMAN WITH ME?
