The righteous turn away (Ezek 18:26-18:26)

“When the righteous

Turn away

From their righteousness,

They commit iniquity.

They shall die.

For the iniquity

That they have committed

They shall die.”

Yahweh was upset that the righteous turned away from their righteousness. They committed iniquities so that they would die. In case there was any doubt, Yahweh, via Ezekiel, repeated this death threat twice.
