What does Jeremiah 50:31 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 50:31

Behold, I [am] against thee, [O thou] most proud, saith the
Lord God of hosts
Or, O "pride", or O "man of pride" F9; intolerably proud, superlatively so, as the kings of Babylon were, as Nebuchadnezzar, and Belshazzar likewise, the present king; so the Targum interprets it of a king,

``behold, I send my fury against thee, O wicked king;''
and is applicable enough to the man of sin, that monster of pride, that exalts himself above all that is called God, or is worshipped, ( 2 Thessalonians 2:4 ) ; and therefore it is no wonder that the Lord is against him, who resists all that are proud; and woe to him and them that he is against: for the day is come, the time [that] I will visit thee;
in a way of vindictive wrath and justice, for pride and other this; see ( Jeremiah 50:27 ) .

F9 (Nwdz) Heb. "superbia", Schmidt; vel "vir superbiae", Piscator; so Abarbinel.
