What does Ezekiel 5:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 5:8

Therefore thus saith the Lord God, behold, even I, [am] against
thee
Or, "behold, I [am] against thee, even I" F21; who am the Lord God omnipotent, great King, and a dreadful one; and a terrible thing it is for a people to have the mighty God against them; or for any to fall into the hands of the living God: this is repeated to show that it certainly was so; and that the Lord was set upon it; and determined to come forth against them in the way of his judgments, as follows: and will execute judgments in the midst of thee, in the sight of the
nations;
that is, inflict punishments upon them for their disregard to his righteous judgments, which should take place in the midst of them, and consume them all around; and should be so manifest as to be seen by all the nations about them.
