This is a story of a man who fathered three illegitimate children. When their father became old and unable to care for himself he told the three brothers that he was their father, and he asked them to take care of him in his old age. The three refused to recognize the old man as their father, and they wouldn't give him anything. This is an example of what happens to unfaithful husbands and wives.
