What does Zechariah 14:1 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Zechariah 14:1

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh
Or the day when the Lord will come, both in his spiritual and personal reign; for this is not to be understood of his first coming in the flesh, at which time none of the things after mentioned happened; nor of his coming to take vengeance on the Jews; but rather of his coming to convert them: and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee;
not the substance of the nations, divided by the Israelites in the midst of Jerusalem, as the Targum and Jarchi interpret it; but the spoil of Jerusalem, when taken by the enemy, as is after said, which should be divided by them with great joy and triumph, in the midst of it: this refers not to the spoil of Jerusalem by Antiochus or the Romans, but to the slaying of the witnesses, and the triumph of their enemies over them, ( Revelation 11:7 Revelation 11:10 ) or else to the spoil and prey the Turks will come to Jerusalem for, when it shall begin the possession of the Jews; and who perhaps at first will have some success; see ( Ezekiel 38:12 Ezekiel 38:13 ) .
