What does Ezekiel 8:18 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 8:18

Therefore will I also deal in fury
Being provoked by such abominable idolatries, and such horrid insolence, and most contemptuous treatment: mine eye shall not spare: neither will I have pity:
see ( Ezekiel 5:11 ) ( Ezekiel 7:4 Ezekiel 7:9 ) ; and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice;
very pressingly and earnestly for help, being in great distress: [yet] will I not hear them;
as they turned their backs on him, he will turn a deaf ear to them, and not regard their cries. The Targum is,

``they shall pray before me, with a great voice, and I will not receive their prayer.''
