Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel,
from everlasting to everlasting.
And let all the people say, "Amen."
Praise the Lord.
A father's righteousness will not prevent his son from being punished for his sins; nor will a righteous son be punished for his father's sins. Note what were considered punishable sins: adultery, robbery, and oppression of the poor and needy.
However, even the sinful can be forgiven and the righteous punished for turning to sin.
God forgave them over and over.
Do not forsake a friend or the friend of your parent;
do not go into the house of your kindred in the day of your calamity.
Better is a neighbor who is near than a kindred who is far away.
