What does Ezekiel 7:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 7:9

And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity
This verse is the same with ( Ezekiel 7:4 ) ; only instead of "I will recompense thy ways upon thee", here it is, I will recompense thee according to thy ways upon thee and thine
abominations [that] are in the midst of thee;
which have both the same sense, showing the equity and justice of the divine proceedings: and to the clause, it is added, and ye shall know that I [am] the Lord that smiteth;
with the rod of his anger, inflicts punishment for sin. The Syriac version is, "that smiteth them"; the Jews, by suffering them to be carried captive: and so the Targum,

``I am the Lord that bringeth upon you a smiting,''
or the blow; the sense is, that when it came, they should be sensible that it was the Lord's doing. (See Gill on Ezekiel 7:4).
