What does Numbers 24:19 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 24:19

Out of Jacob shall come he that shall have dominion
Meaning either David, or rather the Messiah; and so Jarchi interprets this of another ruler out of Jacob, even of the Messiah, of whom it is said, he shall have dominion from sea to sea; ( Psalms 72:8 ) ,

and shall destroy him, that remaineth of the city;
chief city of Edom, or of any of the cities of it, signifying that there should be none left, see ( Obadiah 1:18 ) , this is also applied to the days of the Messiah, in the ancient writings of the Jews F17.
