What does Ezekiel 20:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 20:15

Yet also I lifted up mine hand unto them in the wilderness,
&c.] Swore unto them, as in ( Ezekiel 20:5 Ezekiel 20:6 ) ; that I would not bring them into the land which I had given [them];
by promise to their fathers, and to them. This is to be understood of the generation that came out of Egypt, that received the ill report the spies made, and murmured against the Lord; wherefore he swore in his wrath that they should not enter into his rest; or he would not bring them into the land of Canaan, save Caleb and Joshua; and accordingly none else entered but them, though their posterity did; and so both his oath to them, that they should not enter, and his oath to Abraham, that he would give to his seed the land, had their accomplishment, ( Numbers 14:23 Numbers 14:24 Numbers 14:30 ) ; a land flowing with milk and honey, which [is] the glory of all lands;
(See Gill on Ezekiel 20:6).
