What does Ezekiel 21:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 21:4

Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the
wicked
Some by the sword, some by famine, some by pestilence, and others by captivity; and, upon the whole, none spared, but the land left desolate: therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh,
from the south to the north;
the Chaldean army shall go out of their own land against all the inhabitants of Judea, from Beersheba to Dan; this explains what is meant by all faces being burnt from the south to the north, ( Ezekiel 20:47 ) , namely, the general destruction of the Jews by the Chaldeans.
