What does 2 Chronicles 2:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 2:10

Behold, I will give to thy servants, the hewers that cut
timber, twenty thousand measures of beaten wheat
Meaning, not what was beaten out of the husk with the flail, as some; nor bruised or half broke for pottage, as others; but ground into flour, as R. Jonah F4 interprets it; or rather, perhaps, it should be rendered "food" F5 that is, for his household, as in ( 1 Kings 5:11 ) , and the hire of these servants is proposed to be given in this way, because wheat was scarce with the Tyrians, and they were obliged to have it from the Jews, ( Acts 12:20 ) ( Ezekiel 27:17 ) ,

and twenty thousand measures of barley;
the measures of both these were the cor, of which see ( 1 Kings 5:11 ) ,

and twenty thousand baths of wine, and twenty thousand baths of
oil;
which measure was the tenth part of a "cor". According to the Ethiopians, a man might consume four of these measures in the space of a month F6.
