Akhenaton, Pharao of Egypt, Amarna Tablet EA 401

    He who provides information, assistance and other genuine relief, succour or comfort to a bereaved family, shall forever have his and his successors' hands and spirits blessed.
    But he who brought serious grief over a family by his action or inaction, and thus not only soiled his hands or spirits but failed to clean them by admitting and repairing his mischief as much and as quickly as possible, will personally endure and transmit up to the seventh successive generations the curse visited on him by and through the devine powers accruing to each bereaved father or mother, until such time as forgiveness is genuinely sought, provided for, and properly granted.
