What does Ezekiel 17:20 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 17:20

And I will spread my net upon him, and he shall be taken in my
snare (See Gill on Ezekiel 12:13); where the same words are used, and of the same person: and I will bring him to Babylon;
though, as it is said in the place referred to, he should not see it, his eyes being put out before he was brought thither: and I will plead with him there for his trespass that he hath
trespassed against me;
for though it was breaking covenant and oath with a Heathen prince, yet it was a trespass against God, in whose name they were made; and his being laid in prison at Babylon, and kept there to the time of his death, was the Lord's pleading with him, and judging of him; it was a reproof for his sins, and a condemnation of him and them.
