The phrase," the sins of the father," a biblical phrase, meaning that the children suffer the effects of a father's sins. taken from the Bible.... Deuteronomy 5:9 and Exodus 20:5. "...visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the sons to the third and fourth generation..." was sadly and vividly demonstrated when the son of Bernard Madoff committed suicide because of his fathers criminal actions and the shame that was brought on the family."For the sins of your fathers you, though guiltless, must suffer." Then Shakespeare - Horace, "Odes," III, 6, l. 1.expressed the same thought, "The sins of the father are to be laid upon the children." - Shakespeare,Horace, "Odes," III, 6, l. 1. "The Merchant of Venice," act III, sc. V, l. 1.
Bernard Madoff first sentence for his crimes was a light one compared to this last penality he now has to pay for the rest of his life, responsibility for the death of his son,, what a sad ending for all, society as well as the family.
