What does 2 Chronicles 21:20 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 21:20

Thirty and two years old was he when he began to reign, and he
reigned in Jerusalem eight years
See ( 2 Kings 8:17 ) ,

and departed without being desired;
to live, either by himself, being weary of life through the pain he endured; or by his people, he being so wicked a prince, and so ill beloved by them, that nobody wished to have him live, but were glad to hear of his death; the meaning is, he died unlamented; his death is expressed by a departing out of this world into another, a phrase more than once used for death in the New Testament, see ( John 13:1 ) ( Philippians 1:23 ) ,

howbeit, they buried him in the city of David, but not in the
sepulchres of the kings;
they showed him some respect for the sake of his father, by burying him in the city of David, but denied him the honour of lying in the royal sepulchres, see ( 2 Kings 8:24 ) .
