What does Ezekiel 23:49 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 23:49

And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you
Or, "give your lewdness" F17; the punishment of it; the just recompence of reward for their idolatry: and ye shall bear the sins of your idols;
the shame, and guilt, and punishment of their sins committed in worshipping idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord God;
the only Lord God who is to be worshipped, and not idols; jealous of my honour and glory, and true to my word; who can and will accomplish all I have said; this the Jews knew and acknowledged when in captivity, and returned from it, as they will more fully when they shall be converted in the latter day.
