What does Jeremiah 51:49 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 51:49

As Babylon [hath caused] the slain of Israel
In Jerusalem, when that city was taken the Chaldeans, and destroyed: so at Babylon shall all the slain of all the earth;
or "land"; that is, the land of Chaldea; the inhabitants of which fled to Babylon upon the invasion of the Medes and Persians, both for their own safety, and the defence of that city; and where, being slain, they fell; and this was a just retaliation of them for what they had done to Israel. These words may be considered, as they are by some, as the song of the inhabitants of heaven and earth, observing and applauding the justice and equity of divine Providence in this affair; see ( Revelation 13:7 Revelation 13:10 ) .
