The Sins of Fathers Often Are Visited Upon Their Children, but Not Certainty
In the Scriptures we see Isaac learned deception from his father, Abraham. Isaac passes off his wife as his sister, just as Abraham did with Sarah (see Genesis 12:10, 20:1, 26:7). Looking at the kings of Judah we see some godly kings that had wicked sons, just as some wicked kings had godly sons.
There is a tendency and a trend, but not a certainty. In the New Covenant we see encouragement.
The Lord said: v29 "In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge. v31 I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah: 32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers ..."
In this text God assures His people that under the New Covenant the sins of the fathers will no longer be visited upon their children. However, Fathers should always be good examples for their children.
Proverbs 22:6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and
when he is old, he will not depart from it."
