What does 1 Chronicles 8:33 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 8:33

And Ner begat Kish
Who also is called Abiel, as the Targum here adds; for Ner had two names, as other Jewish writers likewise say F18, see ( 1 Samuel 9:1 ) ,

and Kish begat Saul;
the first king of Israel, for whose sake chiefly the genealogy of Benjamin is revised and enlarged in this chapter:

and Saul begat Jonathan, and Malchishua, and Abinadab, and Eshbaal,
see ( 1 Samuel 31:2 ) . Abinadab is called Ishui, ( 1 Samuel 14:49 ) and Eshbaal is the same with Ishbosheth, ( 2 Samuel 2:8 2 Samuel 2:10 ) , so Baal and Bosheth are used of the same idol of which they are names, ( Hosea 9:10 ) .
