What does Ezekiel 14:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 14:6

Therefore say unto the house of Israel
Deliver out the following exhortation to repentance unto them; for God's end, in all his threatenings and judgments, is to bring men to repentance: thus saith the Lord God, repent, and turn [yourselves] from your idols;
or, "turn, and cause to be turned from your idols" F23; turn yourselves from the worship of idols, as the Targum, and do all that in you lies to turn others from the same; particularly your wives and young men, as Kimchi: and the rather they were obliged to do this, since in all probability they had been the means of drawing them into idolatry: and turn away your faces from all your abominations;
their idols, detestable to God, and ought to have been so to them; these he would have them turn their faces from, not so much as look at them, much less worship them, that they might not be ensnared by them; this is said, in opposition to their setting of them before their face, ( Ezekiel 14:3 Ezekiel 14:4 ) .
