What does Zechariah 14:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Zechariah 14:13

And it shall come to pass in that day
When the vials are pouring out:

[that] a great tumult from the Lord shall be among them;
the Targum renders it, a great tumult, or noise of killing; and the Septuagint, an ecstasy: it refers to the earthquake, and the slaughter of seven thousand men of name, and the fright upon that, ( Revelation 11:13 )

and they shall lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbour, and
shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour;
there will be a revolution, upon this tumult, in several of the antichristian states; and the kings of them shall hate the whore, make her desolate, eat her flesh, and burn her with fire, ( Revelation 17:16 ) or, "his hand shall be cut off by the hand of his neighbour" F21; see ( Zechariah 11:17 ) , the power of antichrist shall be destroyed by neighbouring Christian princes.
