What does Ezekiel 43:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 43:9

Now let them put away their whoredom
Idolatry, superstition, and will worship, with which the corrupt church of Rome abounds; and whatever appearance thereof is in the reformed churches: and the carcasses of their kings far from me;
their idols; (See Gill on Ezekiel 43:7), and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever;
now though the Jews were never guilty of idolatry after their return from the Babylonish captivity, nor even to this day; yet the Lord has departed from them, and left them to blindness and stupidity, they having rejected the Messiah he sent unto them; which shows that this passage refers not to those times, but to future times; when the whole Israel of God shall be cleared of all corruptions in doctrine and worship, and the Lord will take up his abode with them, and no more depart from them.
