What does Ezekiel 31:7 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 31:7

Thus was he fair in his greatness
Amiable, lovely, delightful to look upon in the greatness of his majesty, in his royal glory and dignity: in the length of his branches;
in the extent of his empire, and the provinces of it: for his root was by great waters;
his kingdom was well established, firmly rooted among a multitude of people; from whom he had a large revenue to support his throne and government, and the dignity of it; by tribute, taxes, customs, and presents; and through the large trade and traffic of his subjects in different parts, from whence he received great profit and advantage. The Targum is,

``and he became victorious by his auxiliaries, by the multitude of his mighty ones, so that his terror was upon many people.''
