What does 1 Chronicles 26:18 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 26:18

At Parbar westward
A gate at the western wall; the Jewish writers generally interpret it an outward place, but Dr. Lightfoot F3 thinks it is the same with Parvar, which signifies suburbs, ( 2 Kings 23:11 ) , and which agrees with the description Josephus F4 gives of one of the western gates, that it led to the suburbs:

four at the causeway;
by which was the gate Shallecheth, ( 1 Chronicles 26:16 )

and two at Parbar;
the gate before mentioned.
