Why does Isaiah 40:2 say the Israelites were punished doubly for their sins?

Did they receive double punishment for their sins? Where is this found in the Bible?

Isaiah 40:2

ESV - 2 Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and cry to her that her warfare is ended, that her iniquity is pardoned, that she has received from the Lord 's hand double for all her sins.
