What does 1 Kings 19:16 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 19:16

And Jehu the son of Nimshi shalt thou anoint to be king over
Israel
This was a son of Jehoshaphat, and a grandson of Nimshi; nor does he appear to have been anointed by Elijah, but by Elisha; and being done by his order and direction was the same as if it was done by himself, unless he was twice anointed, see ( 2 Kings 9:1-3 )

and Elisha the son of Shaphat of Abelmeholah shalt thou anoint to be
prophet in thy room;
which was in the half tribe of Manasseh, on this side Jordan; (See Gill on Judges 7:22).
