What does Jeremiah 25:29 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 25:29

For, lo, I begin to bring evil upon the city which is called
by my name
Jerusalem, the city of God, the holy city, where his name was called upon, and he was worshipped; on this he would first bring down his judgments; and indeed he had already begun to bring evil on it; for this very year Nebuchadnezzar came up to besiege it, and carried some away captives: and should ye be utterly unpunished?
or could they expect to go free from punishment, who had so grossly sinned, and were guilty of such abominable idolatries, and had been the means of drawing in the people of God into the same; and therefore, since the professing people of God, who had been drawn in by their examples, were punished, they could not, they ought not, to think of escaping. See the like argument in ( Luke 23:31 ) ( 1 Peter 4:17 1 Peter 4:18 ) ; ye shall not be unpunished;
or cleared, or acquitted, or go free; but made instances and examples of vindictive justice: for I will call for a sword upon all the inhabitants of the earth,
saith the Lord of hosts;
or I will call them that kill with the sword, as the Targum; who will obey the call, answer to it, and come forth and slay the inhabitants of the earth, and none shall escape.
