What are the implications pf "Aririm Yamusu" (or "Yih'yu" - See following Pasuk)?

Rashi: In which case they will bury them.

3)

Bearing in mind the Pasuk "Ish be'Chet'o Yumasu" (Devarim 24:16), how can "Aririm" be telling us that children who are already born will die for the sins of their father?

1.

Maharal in Gur Aryeh: Only children who are minors at the time of the father's sin will bear the punishment of the father's sin, since we find that minors are indeed punished for their father's sins (see Shabbos 32b, Kesuvos 105b, Rashi Koheles 5:5)

2.

Panim Yafos (Vayikra 24:16): If the child sins b'Shogeg, but the father performed the same sin b'Meizid, then the child will be held accountable as if he too sinned b'Meizid even if he is grown up, because of his father's ill intent. But if the child did not sin at all, he will not be punished for his father's sin.

4)

Why does the Torah insert "Aririm" specifically by Dodaso and by Eishes Achiv (in the next Pasuk)?

1.

Ramban: Because it applies exclusively to them. 1

Refer to 17:9:1:2. According to Rashi there (Refer to I7:9:1:1), the question remains unanswered.
