The terms "sons" was often used figuratively by the Jews. So the sons to the third and fourth generation is not literally the direct line from father to son to grandson etc. It does refer to society at large.

son of a year -- a one year old
son of death -- a dead body
son of perdition -- someone who is lost (spiritually)
sons of the priests -- young men in training to be priests, not literal sons
etc.
