What does Ezekiel 7:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 7:5

Thus saith the Lord God
Here should be a stop, a colon, requiring attention to what follows, it being something awful and terrible: an evil, an only evil, behold, it cometh;
meaning the destruction of the city and temple; which, though but one, was such an one as was never known before nor was there any like it. The Targum is,

``evil after evil, lo, it cometh;''
one evil after another; when one evil is gone, another comes, as in ( Ezekiel 7:26 ) . The Syriac version is, "behold, evil for evil comes"; the evil of punishment for the evil of sin.
