NET © Notes

sn The text does not say what the consequences are. Presumably the punishment would come from God, and not from those administering the test.

tn The word “iniquity” can also mean the guilt for the iniquity as well as the punishment of consequences for the iniquity. These categories of meanings grew up through figurative usage (metonymies). Here the idea is that if she is guilty then she must “bear the consequences.”
