visiting the iniquity of the parents... Children do benefit from, and suffer from, the choices of their parents when it comes to health, wealth, education opportunities, and the fate of being born in a peaceful rather than war-torn land. Children are shaped by habits learned in their families of origin as to how they handles stress, quarrels, eating, and drinking. The Talmud interprets this verse to suggest that children who know that their parents are doing wrong but nonetheless choose to follow their example are held responsible for that choice.
- R. Harold Kushner (Eitz Chayim Commentary)
Thou shalt not take... You shall not resort to using God's name to make your lies more plausible. "If one does not keep one's word, that is tantamount to repudiating the name of God."
- R. Abraham Ibn Ezra
You shall not covet: Some view this as an ethical exhortation to master the kinds of impulses that would lead to violation of the preceding commandments, but the Hebrew verb sometimes refers to having designs on a desired object, perhaps even to scheming or maneuvering to acquire it. Hence the sense could be "do not scheme to acquire..."
