What does Jeremiah 52:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 52:13

And burnt the house of the Lord
The temple built by Solomon, after it had stood four hundred and seventy years, six months, and ten days, according to Josephus F26: but the Jews say it stood but four hundred ten years F1: and the king's house;
the royal palace; probably that which was built by Solomon, ( 1 Kings 7:1 ) ; and all the houses of Jerusalem:
of any note or strength: and all the houses of the great [men] burnt he with fire;
of the princes and nobles in Jerusalem; it is in the singular number, "and every house of the great one"; or "every great house" F2; Jarchi interprets it of the synagogue, where prayer was magnified; and others, he says, understood it of the schools, where the law was magnified.
