What does Jeremiah 19:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 19:12

Thus will I do unto this place, saith the Lord, and to the
inhabitants thereof
To the city of Jerusalem and its inhabitants, as was done to the earthen bottle, and as before threatened: and [even],
or also, make this city as Tophet;
as full of slaughtered men and women as that had been of the blood of innocent children; and as filthy, abominable, and execrable a place as that; and to lose its name, as that is foretold it should, ( Jeremiah 19:6 ) ; and as Jerusalem did, after the desolation of it by Hadrian, as Jerom observes; for what was built upon the spot afterwards was by the emperor called Aelia, after his own name.
