What does Ezekiel 35:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 35:9

I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall
not return
To their former dignity and glory; should not be built and inhabited again, but lie waste for ever: this agrees with what is prophesied of Edom, ( Malachi 1:4 ) and will be true of Rome or Babylon when destroyed; it will never rise more, but be like a millstone in the midst of the sea, ( Revelation 18:21 ) : and ye shall know that I am the Lord; (See Gill on Ezekiel 35:4).
