What does 1 Chronicles 9:31 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Chronicles 9:31

And Mattithiah, one of the Levites, who was the firstborn of
Shallum the Korahite
Of whom see ( 1 Chronicles 9:19 ) ,

had the set office over the things that were made in the pans;
the meat offerings that were made in pans; and so had the care of the fine flour, oil, and frankincense used in them, which he delivered to the priests when necessary, see ( Leviticus 2:5 ) , the Septuagint version is,

``over the works of the sacrifice of the pan of the high priest;''

as if it respected peculiarly his meat offering, ( Leviticus 6:20 Leviticus 6:21 ) , we read in the Misnah F25 of the offerings of the high priest, as expressed by this word, which it signifies, and not pans, but what was fried in them {z}; and Ben Melech on the place says, this man was an high priest who offered every day the tenth part of an ephah in a pan, half of it in the morning, and half of it in the evening, according to ( Leviticus 6:20 ) , but that cannot be, for certain it is he was a Levite, as the text expresses it.
