What does 1 Chronicles 22:11 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 22:11

Now, my son, the Lord be with thee
Or "shall be with thee" F18, as some; and if it be as a prayer, it was no doubt a prayer of faith; the Targum is,

``may the Word of the Lord be thine help:''

and prosper thee;
may success attend thee:

and build the house of the Lord thy God, as he hath said of thee;
foretold he should, and therefore would assist him to do it, which was an encouragement to go about it.
