What does Ezekiel 44:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 44:5

And the Lord said unto me, son of man
This is still the voice of the Lord speaking out of the house to the prophet, ( Ezekiel 43:6 ) : mark well;
or, "set thine heart" F6; be attentive to what is about to be said, as being of great concern and importance: and behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say
unto thee;
heart, eyes, and ears, are all to be employed in the most diligent manner in regarding the things hereafter delivered; the same expressions exciting attention were used at the first of this vision, ( Ezekiel 40:4 ) : concerning all the ordinances of the house of the Lord, and all the laws thereof; (See Gill on Ezekiel 43:11), mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the
sanctuary;
the way of entrance into the Gospel church, and the manner of exclusion from it, and the laws and rules concerning these; the prophet is bid particularly to observe these well, because it was in these things God's professing people chiefly offended, as appears by what follows; they were not so careful as they should have been in the admission of persons among them, or in the exclusion of delinquents.
