What does Ezekiel 27:30 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 27:30

And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee
The rulers and governors of the city, for having taken a false step in provoking the enemy, and then holding out the siege no longer, as it was thought they might and would: or rather "over thee", or, "for thee" {h}; mourning over the city, and lamenting its sad case; see ( Revelation 18:9 Revelation 18:11 ) : and shall cry bitterly;
with great weeping, howling, and shrieking: and they shall cast dust upon their heads;
a custom used in the eastern countries, in time of mourning and sorrow; see ( Revelation 18:19 ) : and they shall wallow themselves in ashes:
or roll themselves in them, another custom used in mourning; see ( Jeremiah 6:26 ) ( Micah 1:10 ) .
