The Blame Baton

The word of the Lord came to me again, saying, 

“What do you mean when you use this proverb
concerning the land of Israel, saying:
‘The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
And the children’s teeth are set on edge’?

As I live,” says the Lord God,
“you shall no longer use this proverb in Israel.

“Behold, all souls are Mine;
The soul of the father
As well as the soul of the son is Mine;
The soul who sins shall die.

Ezekiel 18:1-4
