What does Ezekiel 35:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 35:12

And thou shall know that I am the Lord
By the judgments executed upon Edom, and so upon antichrist; for God is known by the judgments he executes, both by good and bad men, ( Psalms 9:16 ) : and that I have heard all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken
against the mountains of Israel;
the people of Israel and Judah literally, and the churches and people of God figuratively: so antichrist is said to open his mouth in blasphemies, and to blaspheme the tabernacle of God, and them that dwell in heaven; that is, the church of God, and the saints of the most High; which are heard and observed by the Lord, and resented by him, and for which he will punish, ( Revelation 13:6 ) : saying, they are laid desolate, they are given up to consume;
or, "for food" F26; to possess and live upon; the inhabitants of them being carried captive or slain, so that there were none to enjoy the fruits of them; and therefore the Edomites concluded that the Israelites were forsaken of God, and that he would no more regard them, and that their land was theirs, which gave them great joy; see ( Revelation 11:10 ) .
