What does Jeremiah 46:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 46:26

And I will deliver them into the hand of those that seek their
lives
Into the hands of the Chaldeans; that is, the king of Egypt, and all his people, and those that trusted in him: and into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand
of his servants;
his general officers, that commanded in his army under him. Berosus F19, the Chaldean, makes mention of Nebuchadnezzar's carrying the Egyptians captive into Babylon; and afterwards it shall be inhabited, as in the days of old, saith the
Lord;
after forty years, as Ezekiel prophesied, ( Jeremiah 29:13 Jeremiah 29:14 ) ; not that it should rise to the same glory and dignity as before, for it would be but a base kingdom; but whereas it was desolate and uninhabited after this destruction, it should now be inhabited again.
