What does Ezekiel 36:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 36:1

Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel,
&c.] The land of Judah, which was very mountainous, at least one part of it, called the hill country, ( Luke 1:39 Luke 1:65 ) and now the country being cleared of men through the captivity, and other desolating judgments, there were none but bare mountains to speak unto: or, "prophesy concerning the mountains of Israel" F4; the inhabitants of them, or those that should be restored to them, concerning their future happiness and comfort: some render it, "against the mountains of Israel" F5; but the later prophecies of them are in their favour, and not against them: and say, ye mountains of Israel,
hear the word of the Lord; concerning the destruction of their enemies, and concerning the temporal blessings that should be bestowed on them.
