Summary: Is this verse unfair? Will children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren really suffer because of their parents' sins?

Verse: "And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, 'The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.'" —Exodus 34:6, 7

(Quote from Ezekiel 20:20 is actually Ezekiel 18:20)
