I just know a little about the punishment of iniquity. Isaiah 53:6 (ESV) says, 6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. The phrase "bear iniquity" is a standing expression for bearing its consequences, i.e. its penalty; generally of the sinner bearing the results of his own iniquity (Leviticus 17:16; 20:17,19; Numbers 14:34; Ezekiel 44:10, etc.), but sometimes of one bearing the iniquity of another vicariously, and so taking it away (e.g. Ezekiel 4:4; 18:19 f). Of special interest in the latter sense are the sufferings of the Servant of Yahweh, who shall "bear the iniquities" of the people (Isaiah 53:11; compare Isaiah 53:6). James Orr I love the hymn by John Moore, too, which contains the refrain: All my iniquities on him were laid; He nailed them all to the tree. Jesus, the debt of my sin fully paid, He paid the ransom for me. https://lyricstranslate.com/en/John-M-Moore-Why-lyrics.html
