What does Ezekiel 39:25 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 39:25

Therefore thus saith the Lord
The Jews having been long punished for their sins; and being brought to repentance for them, and to faith in Christ, as they will be in the latter day: hence it follows, now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob;
or the captives of Jacob, the people of Israel, that have been carried captive into all lands; these shall be gathered from thence, and brought into their own land: and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel;
all the twelve tribes; which shows that this has not respect to the return of the Jews from the Babylonish captivity; for then the Lord had mercy on the house of Judah only; or the two tribes of Judah and Benjamin; but their return from their present captivity, and future conversion, when all Israel shall be saved;
as the fruit and effect of the rich sovereign grace and mercy of God unto them, ( Romans 11:25 Romans 11:26 ) : and will be jealous for my holy name;
or, "zealous" F12 for the glory of it, that it be no more blasphemed among the Heathen; and that it be glorified among his own people.
