312 God Decides People’s End According to Their Essence

Verse 1

If one is ultimately able to survive,

it’s because they’ve achieved God’s requirements.

But if one can’t live in final rest,

it’s because they disobey and can’t please God.

Neither a child’s wicked deeds nor their righteousness

can be transferred to his or her parents.

And parents’ evil or righteousness

can’t be shared with any of their children.


Chorus

There’s a destination that each person deserves.

That’s determined based on their essence.

One’s destination is in no way related to others.


Verse 2

To each their own sins or their blessing,

no one can substitute for another.

If one is a doer of righteousness, they’re righteous.

And one is an evildoer if evil’s what they do.

Doers of righteousness are bound to survive,

and destruction awaits evildoers.

If one is holy, there’s no filthy spot on them.

If one is filthy, they have no single holy part.


Chorus

There’s a destination that each person deserves.

That’s determined based on their essence.

One’s destination is in no way related to others.


Verse 3

Wicked people are to be destroyed,

and survival awaits righteous people,

even if an evildoer’s child is righteous,

or a righteous person’s parents are wicked.

There is no relationship whatsoever

if a husband believes and a wife doesn’t,

or if a child believes and their parents don’t.

They’re two types that do not go together.


Chorus

There’s a destination that each person deserves.

That’s determined based on their essence.

One’s destination is in no way related to others.


Verse 4

So before one enters into rest,

there are physical relatives ’round them.

But once they’ve entered into rest,

they have no such relatives to speak of.

If one does their duty, they’re a foe to those who don’t.

Those who love God are foes to those who hate Him.

And those who enter into rest

are incompatible with those who are destroyed.


Chorus

There’s a destination that each person deserves.

That’s determined based on their essence.

One’s destination is in no way related to others.
