make you a desolation and an object of mocking among the
nations around you, in the sight of all that pass by. 15You shall
be* a mockery and a taunt, a warning and a horror, to the
nations around you, when I execute judgements on you in anger
and fury, and with furious punishments—I, the Lord, have
spoken— 16when I loose against you my deadly arrows of
famine, arrows for destruction, which I will let loose to destroy
you, and when I bring more and more famine upon you, and
break your staff of bread. 17I will send famine and wild animals
against you, and they will rob you of your children; pestilence
and bloodshed shall pass through you; and I will bring the sword
upon you. I, the Lord, have spoken. (Ezekiel 5:13-17)

Then the cherubim lifted up their wings, with the wheels
beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.
23And the glory of the Lord ascended from the middle of the city,
and stopped on the mountain east of the city. 24The spirit lifted
me up and brought me in a vision by the spirit of God into
Chaldea, to the exiles. Then the vision that I had seen left me.
25And I told the exiles all the things that the Lord had shown me.

18 1The word of the Lord came to me: 2What do you mean by
repeating this proverb concerning the land of Israel, ‘The parents
have eaten sour grapes, and the children’s teeth are set on
edge’? 3As I live, says the Lord God, this proverb shall no more
be used by you in Israel….
Yet you say, ‘Why should not the son suffer for the iniquity of
the father?’ When the son has done what is lawful and right, and
has been careful to observe all my statutes, he shall surely live.
20The person who sins shall die. A child shall not suffer for the
iniquity of a parent, nor a parent suffer for the iniquity of a child;
the righteousness of the righteous shall be his own, and the
wickedness of the wicked shall be his own.
(Ezekiel 18: 1-20)
