The just way of Yahweh (Ezek 33:17-33:17)

“Yet your people say.

‘The way of Yahweh

Is not just!’

When it is

Their own way

That is not just.”

Just like earlier in chapter 18, Yahweh received a challenge about fairness. Why was Yahweh unfair? Yahweh responded to his people that it was not his ways that were unjust, rather it was their own ways that were not just.

The fair way (Ezek 18:25-18:25)

“Yet you say!

‘The way of Yahweh

Is unfair.’

‘Hear now!

O house of Israel!

Is my way unfair?

Is it not your ways

That are unfair?”

Yahweh received a challenge about fairness. Why was Yahweh unfair? Yahweh responded to the house of Israel. It was not his ways that were unfair, it was their ways that were unfair.
