What does Jeremiah 4:27 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 4:27

For thus hath the Lord said
What follows is an explanation and confirmation of the above vision the prophet had: the whole land shall be desolate;
as he had seen; it should not be manured, ploughed, and sown, or bring forth fruit; and should be without inhabitants, at least have very few: yet I will not make a full end;
there should be some inhabitants, who, with those that should hereafter return from captivity, would repeople it, rebuild the temple, and restore it to its pristine form and order, both as to things natural, civil, and ecclesiastical; but though a full end of them, as a church and people, was not to be made now by the Chaldeans, yet it would be; as it has been done by the Romans, in the times of Vespasian and Hadrian.
