What does Ezekiel 27:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 27:26

Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters
Here the city of Tyre is compared to a vessel at sea, with great propriety, it being built in the sea, and its trade chiefly there; and its rulers and governors, or the inhabitants of it, to rowers; literally the men of Zidon and Arvad were her rowers, ( Ezekiel 27:8 ) , the straits, difficulties, and distresses these brought Tyre into, are compared to great waters; who, by some unadvised step or another, provoked the king of Babylon to come against them with his army, and lay siege unto them: the east wind hath broken thee in the midst of the seas;
a wind very fatal to ships and mariners; see ( Psalms 48:7 ) , by it are meant Nebuchadnezzar and the Chaldean army; so called, because of their great force and fury; and because Babylon, from whence they came, lay somewhat to the east of Tyre. So the Targum,

``a king who is strong as the east wind hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.''
