What does Ezekiel 22:24 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 22:24

Son of man, say unto her, thou land
Thou land of Israel, as the Targum: thou art not cleansed;
from filthiness, by the fire of divine judgments; or reformed from sins, by the instructions, cautions, and exhortations of the prophets; none of these things had any effect upon her to make her wiser and better. So the Targum,

``a land not cleansed it is, and good works are not done in it, to protect it in the day of cursing:''
nor rained upon in the day of indignation;
no cooling shower to quench the fire of divine wrath; nothing to avert or stop the judgments of God; no refreshment and comfort from the doctrines of the prophets, which fell like rain: it is a judgment upon a people to have no rain, either in a temporal or spiritual sense; see ( Zechariah 14:17 Zechariah 14:18 ) . In the Talmud F8, this text is brought to prove that the flood did not come upon the land of Israel.
