What does Zechariah 2:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Zechariah 2:13

Be silent, O all flesh, before the Lord
Be filled with fear, awe, and astonishment, at the wonderful work of God; the destruction of antichrist; the conversion of the Jews, and the calling of the Gentiles: let them not open their mouths, or dare to say one word against it. The Targum interprets the words of the wicked, and paraphrases them thus,

``let all the wicked be consumed before the Lord;''
see ( Psalms 104:35 ) and it seems to design the rest of the people, who will not be converted; called flesh, being not only frail and mortal, but corrupt and sinful; and so not able to contend with God, who is mighty in strength, and glorious in holiness, and a God doing wonders. A like phrase is in ( Habakkuk 2:20 ) : for he is raised up out of his holy habitation:
which is heaven, ( Isaiah 63:15 ) where he seemed to have been as it were asleep for many hundreds of years, even during the reign of antichrist; but now he will be as a man awaked out of his sleep, and will arise to take vengeance on his and his church's enemies, and to help them, and make them happy and glorious.
