What does 1 Chronicles 22:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 22:9

Behold, a son shall be born to thee
For this was said to David before the birth of Solomon, see ( 2 Samuel 7:12 2 Samuel 7:13 ) ( 12:24 )

who shall be a man of rest, and I will give him rest from all his
enemies round about:
and so should be at leisure for such a work, and his people enjoy great prosperity and riches, and so be capable of contributing largely and liberally to it:

for his name shall be Solomon;
which signifies peace, and is one of the six persons that had their names given them before they were born, as the Jews observe F17:

and I will give peace and quietness unto Israel in his days;
and so a proper time to begin and carry on such a work; of the fulfilment of this prophecy, see ( 1 Kings 4:24 1 Kings 4:25 ) ( 1 Kings 5:3 1 Kings 5:4 ) .
