2 Kings 14:6; 2 Chronicles 25:4; Jeremiah 31:29–30; Ezekiel 18:20

But he did not put to death the children of the murderers, according to what is written in the Book of the Law of Moses, where the Lord commanded, rFathers shall not be put to death because of their children, nor shall children be put to death because of their fathers. But each one shall die for his own sin.


But he did not put their children to death, according to what is written in the Law, in the Book of Moses, where the Lord commanded, kFathers shall not die because of their children, nor children die because of their fathers, but each one shall die for his own sin.


29 In those days they shall no longer say:

mThe fathers have eaten sour grapes,

and the children's teeth are set on edge.

30 nBut everyone shall die for his own iniquity. Each man who eats sour grapes, his teeth shall be set on edge.


20 cThe soul who sins shall die. dThe son shall not suffer for the iniquity of the father, nor the father suffer for the iniquity of the son. eThe righteousness of the righteous shall be upon himself, fand the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon himself.
