1 Samuel 3 - Key

v13

For I have told him that I will judge his house for ever for the iniquity which he knoweth; because his sons made themselves vile, and he restrained them not.

In the first part of this verse, it says, I have told him that I will judge... for the iniquity which he knoweth... The judgment wasn't coming for an unsure thing that was maybe wrong, but for the iniquity which he knoweth. And the Lord had already warned him about it: I have told him that I will judge...

Application

What is the iniquity which I know, and the Lord has told me He will judge? I must be zealous to repent before the point comes where (v14) the iniquity... shall not be purged with sacrifice nor offering for ever. That reminds me of:

Hebrews 10:26
For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins...
