The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin.
As soon as the kingdom was firmly in his grasp, Amaziah killed his servants who had murdered his father the king.
However, he did not put the children of the murderers to death, as it is written in the book of the law of Moses where the LORD commanded, "Fathers must not be put to death because of children, and children must not be put to death because of fathers; instead, each one will be put to death for his own sin."
However, he did not put their children to death, because-- as it is written in the Law, in the book of Moses, where the LORD commanded-- "Fathers must not die because of children, and children must not die because of fathers, but each one will die for his own sin."
"In those days, it will never again be said: The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
Rather, each will die for his own wrongdoing. Anyone who eats sour grapes-- his own teeth will be set on edge.
The person who sins is the one who will die. A son won't suffer punishment for the father's iniquity, and a father won't suffer punishment for the son's iniquity. The righteousness of the righteous person will be on him, and the wickedness of the wicked person will be on him.
