And I will come near to you for judgment; and I will be a swift witness against the sorcerers, and against the adulterers, and against false swearers, and against those that oppress the hireling in his wages, the widow, and the fatherless, and that turn aside the sojourner from his right, and fear not me,
says the LORD of hosts.

Christ condemned the world, as his spirit did likewise, John xvi. 8. He made an example of Jerusalem, which showed that he would not leave crimes unpunished. We may also understand this of his last coming. (Calmet)
God threatens to punish even secret sins, which are know to him alone. (Worthington)
