The Call for Repentance

Then the Word of the Lord came to me again and saying,

Son of man, if a country sins  against ME, by grievously committing unfaithfulness, and I stretch out MY hand against it; to destroy its supply of bread, and to send famine on it, and cut off from that country man  and beast;

Though these three men, Noah, Daniel and Job were in the middle of that country, by their own righteousness they could only deliver themselves declares the LORD GOD. If I cause the beast to pass thru the land and they depopulate it where no man can dwell in it,

Although these three men that are in it, As I Live declares the LORD, they cannot deliver either son nor daughter, they alone would be delivered, but the country would be destroyed.

Or if  I send an enemy on that country and say, let War pass thru that country and cut off man and beast from it, even though these three men were in the middle of it, As I Live declares the LORD, they cannot deliver either son nor daughter, But they alone would be delivered.

Or if i should send a plague against that country and pour out MY anger  in blood on it, to cut off man and beast, even though Noah, Daniel and Job were in the middle of that country, As I Live says the LORD GOD, they cannot deliver son nor daughter. They would deliver Only themselves by their righteousness. 

(Ezekiel 14:12-23)
