Christ, lines 1199-1311

On the day of judgment, those who have done evil will see the marks of their sins on the body of God. On the right hand of Christ, the pure will be gathered; those who are evil will be on the left hand and he will command them to depart.

There will be three special characteristics of those who are blessed: they will gleam with light, they will be able to see the angels and kingdom of heaven, and they will get to see the punishment of the evil one.  The good will get great joy from the misery of those being punished.

For others, it will be a time when they can see their own sins and when God will scrutinize their sins within them. Their own punishments will make them suffer, as will the happiness of others.  They would have been much better off confessing their sins before this day.
