Adler number: delta,1072
Translated headword: just, righteous
Vetting Status: high
Translation:
One of the saints said: "we do not all beg to save others, but ourselves we all always do."[1] And another [says]: "saving save your own soul."[2] And the Prophet [says] as if speaking from God: "when the righteous man turns from his righteousness to do unrighteousness, all his righteous deeds, which he has done, shall not be remembered; in his sin he shall die."[3] "And the righteousness of the righteous man shall not deliver him, on the day when he goes astray."[4]
Greek Original:
Δίκαιος: ὅτι ἔφη τις τῶν ὁσίων: ἄλλους μὲν γὰρ οὐ πάντες ἀπαιτούμεθα σῶσαι, ἑαυτοὺς δὲ πάντες πάντως. καὶ ἄλλος: σῴζων σῷζε τὴν σεαυτοῦ ψυχήν. καὶ ὁ Προφήτης ὡς ἐκ θεοῦ: ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέψαι δίκαιον ἐκ τῆς δικαιοσύνης αὐτοῦ ποιῆσαι ἀδικίαν πᾶσαι αἱ δικαιοσύναι αὐτοῦ, ἃς ἐποίησεν, οὐ μὴ μνησθῶσιν: ἐν τῇ ἁμαρτίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται. καὶ δικαιοσύνη δικαίου οὐ μὴ ἐξέληται αὐτόν, ἐν ᾗ ἂν ἡμέρᾳ πλανηθῇ.
