What does 1 Chronicles 7:28 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 7:28

And their possessions and habitations
That is, of the sons of Ephraim, when come into the land of Canaan:

were Bethel, and the towns thereof;
the villages belonging to it, which was formerly called Luz, and was the border of Ephraim, ( Joshua 16:7 )

and eastward Naaran:
the same with Naarath, ( Joshua 16:7 )

and westward Gezer, with the towns thereof;
of which see ( Joshua 16:3 Joshua 16:10 ) ,

and Shechem also, and the towns thereof;
which was a city of refuge in Mount Ephraim, ( Joshua 20:7 )

unto Gaza, and the towns thereof;
not Gaza, a city of the Philistines, for the tribe of Ephraim did not reach so far; the Targum calls it Aiah; it may be read Adaza, as in the margin of our Bibles.
