What does 1 Samuel 26:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Samuel 26:6

Then answered David
Or addressed himself to the two following persons:

and said to Ahimelech the Hittite;
who was either an Hittite by birth, but was become a proselyte, or he was an Israelite that had dwelt among the Hittites, and so had this name given him; the former seems most probable; some say F11 this was Uriah the Hittite:

and to Abishai the son of Zeruiah, brother to Joab;
Zeruiah was the sister of David, ( 1 Chronicles 2:15 1 Chronicles 2:16 ) ; and these were two sons of hers, who very probably joined David at the cave of Adullam, ( 1 Samuel 22:1 ) ;

saying, who will go down with me to Saul to the camp?
that is, which of you two?

and Abishai said, I will go down with thee;
the other being timorous, or Abishai being most forward spoke first.
