Proverbs 24

Proverbs 24:11-12.

“Rescue the perishing; don’t hesitate to step in and help. If you say, ‘Hey, that’s none of my business,’ will that get you off the hook? Someone is watching you closely, you know. Someone not impressed with weak excuses.” (Message).

“If you refrained from rescuing those taken off to death, those condemned to slaughter – If you say, ‘We knew nothing of it,’ surely He who fathoms hearts will disern the truth, He who watches over your life will know it, and He will pay each man as he deserves.” (Tanakh).

“Go and rescue the perishing! Be their savior! Why would you stand back and watch them stagger to their death? And why would you say, ‘But it’s none of my business’? The One who knows you completely and judges your every motive is also the keeper of souls – and not just yours! He sees through your excuses and holds you responsible for failing to help those whose lives are threatened.”  (TPT).
