What does Jeremiah 44:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 44:4

Howbeit, I sent unto you all my servants the prophets
As many as he raised up, and employed in the work and service of prophesying; and these were many; and as many as they were, he sent them to them, one after another, to warn them of their sin and danger; but all to no purpose; which was a further aggravation of their wickedness: nay, though he was rising early, and sending [them];
was very early in his messages to them; gave them timely warning, and let slip no opportunity of admonishing them; and this he did constantly; see ( Jeremiah 7:13 Jeremiah 7:25 ) ; saying, Oh, do not this abominable thing that I hate;
all sin is abominable in itself, and hateful to God, especially idolatry; and therefore should not be done; it should be abominable to men, and hateful to them, because it is so to God; and after such a remonstrance as this, to commit it must be very aggravating and provoking.
