What does Jeremiah 52:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 52:15

Then Nebuzaradan the captain of the guard carried away captive
[certain] of the poor of the people
That is, of the city, as distinct from the poor of the land of Judea he left, afterwards observed: and the residue of the people that remained in the city;
that died not by the sword or famine, and fled not with Zedekiah: or "even the residue of the people"; and so are the same with the poor people in the former clause; though Kimchi explains it thus,

``some of the poor of the people he carried captive, and some of them he left:''
and those that fell away, that fell to the king of Babylon;
that fell off from the Jews, and surrendered to the king of Babylon during the siege; or that voluntarily came in, and put themselves into the hands of the captain of the guard: and the rest of the multitude;
of the people, both in city and country.
