And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity,
&c.] Though the punishment will be heavy, and the lamentation will be great; see ( Ezekiel 5:11 ) ; but I will recompense thy ways upon thee;
the evil of punishment for the evil of sin, the righteous demerit of their actions: and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee;
not taken away, unatoned for, and indeed not repented of. The Targum is,
``and the punishment of thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee:''and ye shall know that I [am] the Lord;
to whom vengeance belongs; who takes notice of sinful actions, and punishes for them; to whom appertain the perfections of omniscience, omnipotence, and punitive justice.
