What does Ezekiel 35:4 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 35:4

I will lay thy cities waste
Such as Dedan, Teman, Bozrah, and other cities of Idumea mentioned in Scripture; and figuratively may design all within the jurisdiction of Rome, the several cities of the antichristian states, called "the cities of the nations"; which will fall at the pouring out of the vials, ( Revelation 16:19 ) : and thou shalt be desolate;
thoroughly and entirely, and remain so: and thou shalt know that I am the Lord;
that has done all this; that the hand of God was in it; and that this is a punishment inflicted by him, for their sins after mentioned; but not that they should know the Lord spiritually and savingly, and so as to yield obedience to him, and own and acknowledge him to be their God; though this may be the case of a remnant among them; see ( Revelation 11:13 ) ( 18:4 ) .
