Bible: 2 Kings 14:5-6

14:5 When he had secured control of the kingdom, 1  he executed the servants who had assassinated his father. 2  14:6 But he did not execute the sons of the assassins. He obeyed the Lord’s commandment as recorded in the law scroll of Moses, 3 Fathers must not be put to death for what their sons do, 4  and sons must not be put to death for what their fathers do. 5  A man must be put to death only for his own sin.” 6
