What does Jeremiah 27:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 27:5

I have made the earth, the man and the beast that [are] upon
the ground
The earth was made by him on the first day, and man and beast on the sixth day, of the creation; the earth is still supported in its being, and man and beast are continued on it in succession: this is mentioned to show his right and authority to dispose of the earth, and all in it, at his pleasure; which is founded on his creation and sustaining of it, and all creatures in it: which was, and is, as he says, by my great power, and by my outstretched arm;
for nothing less could have created the original chaos out of nothing, and brought that into form and order, and produced out of it such creatures as man and beast; and nothing less than that could continue it in being, and a succession of creatures on it: and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me;
some part of it to one, and some to another; and more to one than to another; but to none according to their merit, but according to his own sovereign will and pleasure; see ( Psalms 115:16 ) .
