What does Isaiah 60:22 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Isaiah 60:22

A little one shall become a thousand
A small family, a little handful of people in all ages, scattered up and down in the world, of no esteem and account in it, being all gathered together, that ever were in the world, will appear to be thousands and millions, and such a number as no man can number, ( Revelation 7:9 ) and a small one a strong nation;
a company of weak persons, persecuted by their enemies, and unable to resist them, as in the present state: now there will be a nation of them strong and mighty; the feeble among them shall be as David, and the house of David as God, as the Angel of the Lord, ( Zechariah 12:8 ) : I the Lord will hasten it in his time:
as there was a fixed appointed time for Christ's first coming, so there is for his second coming, when this state and dispensation of things will commence; and when that time comes, it will be deferred no longer; as soon as ever it is up, the Lord will hasten the accomplishment of what he has promised, and who is able also to perform; see ( 1 Timothy 6:15 ) .
