The Word of  ADONAI  came to me saying:  

Son of man,  speak to the children of your people and say to them:  

"When I bring a sword upon a land,  

suppose the people of the land take a man from among them,  

and set him as their watchman.  


If,  when he sees the sword coming upon the land,  

he blows the shofar and warns the people,  

then whoever hears the sound of the shofar but ignores the warning,  

if the sword comes and takes him away,  

his blood will be on his own head.  

He heard the sound of the shofar and ignored the warning;  

his blood will be on himself.  

However,  if he had taken warning,  he would have saved his soul.  


But if the watchman sees the sword come and does not blow the shofar,  

the people are not warned.  

Then the sword does come and takes a person from among them-

he is taken away in his iniquity,  

but his bloodiwill require at the watchmans hand."

You,  son of man,  Ihave set you as a watchman for the house of Israel.  

When you hear The Word from MYMouth,  warn them from ME.

 (Ezekiel33:1-7)
