What does 1 Chronicles 7:23 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 7:23

And when he went in to his wife
After his grief and sorrow in part at least had subsided:

she conceived and bare a son;
which in some measure made up for the loss he had sustained:

and he called his name Beriah;
which signifies being "in evil" or calamity, he being born in an evil time:

because it went evil with his house;
or evil was in his house, as Noldius F13, in his family; a great calamity had befallen it.
