First Reading for the 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year A

Ezekial 18:25-28

Summary: The Lord responds to those who complain about fairness. God's ways are just. A virtuous person who turns to iniquity will face consequences, but if they repent, their life will be preserved.

Repentance and Fairness

Thus says the LORD: You say, “The LORD’s way is not fair!”

Hear now, house of Israel: Is it my way that is unfair, or rather, are not your ways unfair?

When someone virtuous turns away from virtue to commit iniquity, and dies, it is because of the iniquity he committed that he must die.

But if he turns from the wickedness he has committed, he does what is right and just, he shall preserve his life; since he has turned away from all the sins that he has committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.
