What does 2 Kings 22:17 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 22:17

Because they have forsaken me
My worship, as the Targum; his word and ordinances:

and have burnt incense unto other gods;
to Baal, to the host of heaven, and other Heathen deities:

that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands:
their idols of wood, stone, gold, and silver, which their hands had made, to worship; than which nothing was more provoking to God:

therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not
be quenched;
the decree for the destruction of Jerusalem was gone forth, and not to be called back; the execution of it could not be stopped or hindered by cries, prayers, entreaties, or otherwise; this wrath of God was an emblem of the unquenchable fire of hell, ( Matthew 3:12 ) ( Mark 9:44 ) .
