But when the righteous turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and does according to all the abominations that the wicked man does, will he live? None of his righteous deeds that he has done will be remembered; in his trespass that he has trespassed and in his sin that he has sinned, in them will he die. Bible see other translations

“righteous.” In this context, “righteous” means doing what is right to God and others, it does not mean “saved” (see commentary on Matt. 5:6).
