What does Jeremiah 49:17 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 49:17

Also Edom shall be a desolation
Not only Bozrah, its principal city, before spoken of, but the whole country of Idumea should be laid waste; its fortified cities destroyed; its riches plundered; and its inhabitants slain with the sword; or carried captive: everyone that goeth by it shall be astonished;
at the desolation made, so suddenly and so universally: and shall hiss at all the plagues thereof;
rejoice at them; clap their hands, and shake their heads, as the Targum; and hiss with their tongues, insulting and deriding them.
