He that ... hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord. Ezekiel 18:8-9

When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live. The soul that sinneth, it shall die. Ezekiel 18:19-20

When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby. But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby. Ezekiel 33:18-19
