Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

5:1 And hear - And for that is, as that particle is often used. For this declares in particular what the sin was.

He hath seen - Been present when it was said. Or known - By sufficient information from others. His iniquity - That is, the punishment of it; so that word is oft used, as Gen 19:15, Num 18:1.
