What does 2 Kings 14:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 14:12

And Judah was put to the worse before Israel
Could not face them; but, as Josephus F4 says, a sudden fear and consternation seized them, and before they joined battle with the Israelites, turned their backs:

and they fled every man to their tents;
to their cities, as the Targum, and left their king alone.
