What does 1 Chronicles 13:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 13:5

So David gathered all Israel together
The principal of them, even 30,000 select men, ( 2 Samuel 6:1 ) from Shihor of Egypt;
or the Nile of Egypt, as the Targum and other Jewish writers, called Shihor from the blackness of its water, see ( Jeremiah 2:18 ) though some think the river Rhinocurura is meant, which both lay to the south of the land of Israel: even unto the entering of Hamath;
which the Targum interprets of Antiochia, which lay to the north of the land; so that this collection of the people was made from south to north, the extreme borders of the land: to bring the ark of God from Kirjathjearim;
where it then was, and had been a long time, see ( 1 Samuel 7:1 ) , from hence to the end of the chapter the account is the same with ( 2 Samuel 6:1-11 ) , see the notes there; what little variations there are, are there observed. (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:1) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:2) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:3) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:4) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:5) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:6) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:7) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:8) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:9) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:10) (See Gill on 2 Samuel 6:11)
