What does 1 Samuel 16:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Samuel 16:10

Again Jesse made seven of his sons pass before Samuel
Not seven more, for he had but eight sons in all with David, ( 1 Samuel 17:12 ) but four more, which with the other three made seven; three of these four are mentioned by name, Nathanael, Raddai, and Ozem, ( 1 Chronicles 2:14 1 Chronicles 2:15 ) , but the fourth we nowhere read of; perhaps he died quickly after this, was an obscure person, and of no fame and note, or might be by another woman:

and Samuel said unto Jesse, the Lord hath not chosen these;
not anyone of them.
