Psalm 25:4-9 and Ezekiel 18:25-28
4 May all those who act unjustly over nothing be confounded. O Lord, demonstrate your ways to me, and teach me your paths.
5 Direct me in your truth, and teach me. For you are God, my Saviour, and I remain with you all day long.
6 O Lord, remember your compassion and your mercies, which are from ages past.
7 Do not remember the offenses of my youth and my ignorances. Remember me according to your mercy, because of your goodness, O Lord.
8 The Lord is sweet and righteous. Because of this, he will grant a law to those who fall short in the way.
9 He will direct the mild in judgment. He will teach the meek his ways.
25 And you have said, 'The way of the Lord is not fair.' Therefore, listen, O house of Israel. How could it be that my way is not fair? And is it not instead your ways that are perverse?
26 For when the just man turns himself away from his justice, and commits iniquity, he shall die by this; by the injustice that he has worked, he shall die.
27 And when the impious man turns himself away from his impiety, which he has done, and accomplishes judgment and justice, he shall cause his own soul to live.
28 For by considering and turning himself away from all his iniquities, which he has worked, he shall certainly live, and he shall not die.
