What does Jeremiah 6:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Jeremiah 6:12

And their houses shall be turned unto others
To strangers, to the Chaldeans; they shall be transferred unto them, come into their hands, and become their property: with their fields and wives together:
not only their houses and lands shall be taken away from them, and put to the use of others, but even their wives; than which nothing could be more distressing: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith
the Lord;
the inhabitants of the land of Judea; and so the Septuagint render it, "upon them that inhabit this land"; and so the Arabic version: wherefore, since the Lord would exert himself in this affair, and stretch out his hand of almighty power, as the Targum paraphrases it,

``I will lift up the stroke of my power;''
it might be depended upon that all this destruction threatened would come on them.
