What does 1 Chronicles 21:29 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 21:29

For the tabernacle of the Lord, which Moses made
Or ordered to be made by the command of God, and according to his direction:

and the altar of burnt offerings, were at that season in the high place
at Gibeon;
which was four or five miles from Jerusalem, and too far for David to go in that time of extremity; though he must have gone thither to sacrifice, had not the Lord bid him build an altar on the threshingfloor; for there was the altar of burnt offering, on which only, according to the law of Moses, sacrifices were to be offered: this high place is, in the Targum, called the sanctuary, it including, as Kimchi observes, the whole house, the tabernacle, and the altar in it; which had been here, and at Nob, fifty seven years, as the Jewish writers say F14.
