What does Exodus 15:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Exodus 15:5

The depths have covered them
The depths of the sea covered Pharaoh and his host, so as to be seen no more; and in like manner will mystical Babylon, or antichrist, be destroyed, and be no more found and seen; as likewise the sins of God's people, being cast into the depths of the sea, and covered with the blood of Christ, will be seen no more; when they are sought for, they shall not be found: they sunk into the bottom as a stone;
into the bottom of the sea, as a stone thrown into anybody of water sinks and rises not up again; this circumstance is observed by ( Nehemiah 9:11 ) their persecutors thou threwest into the deep, as a stone into the
mighty waters;
and thus a stone like a millstone being taken by an angel and cast into the sea, is made an emblem of the irrecoverable ruin and destruction of Babylon, or antichrist, ( Revelation 18:21 ) .
