What does 1 Samuel 16:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Samuel 16:3

And call Jesse to the sacrifice
His family, both him and his sons, to partake of the peace offerings; as every offerer had a right to invite his friends, and whomsoever he pleased, to eat of those parts of them which belonged to him, as a feast before the Lord:

and I will show thee what thou shall do;
when Jesse and his family were with him:

and thou shalt anoint unto me him whom I name unto thee;
that is, anoint him to be king over Israel, whom he should point out so plainly to him, as if he called him by name.
