What does Ezekiel 29:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 29:13

Yet thus saith the Lord God, at the end of forty years
Reckoning from its devastation by Nebuchadnezzar to the taking of Babylon by Cyrus: will I gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were
scattered;
from Babylon, and other places; Cyrus very probably being stirred up by the Lord to proclaim liberty to the Egyptians, as he did to the Jews, to return to their own land; and at the same time restored Amasis to the quiet possession of his kingdom, who must be still alive; since, according to Diodorus Siculus F23, he reigned fifty five years; though, according to Herodotus F24, he reigned but forty four years.
