Sirach 41:5

Deuterocanon (Ben Sira, Ecclesiasticus)

3 Do not fear death's decree for you; remember those who went before you and those who will come after. 4 This is the Lord's decree for all flesh; why then should you reject the will of the Most High? Whether life lasts for ten years or a hundred or a thousand, there are no questions asked in Hades. 5 The children of sinners are abominable children, and they frequent the haunts of the ungodly. 6 The inheritance of the children of sinners will perish, and on their offspring will be a perpetual disgrace. 7 Children will blame an ungodly father, for they suffer disgrace because of him.

John 9:2

New Testament

1 Now as Jesus was passing by, he saw a man who had been blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who committed the sin that caused him to be born blind, this man or his parents?” 3 Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but he was born blind so that the acts of God may be revealed through what happens to him. 4 We must perform the deeds of the one who sent me as long as it is daytime. Night is coming when no one can work. Source
