What does 2 Kings 14:14 mean?

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

And he took all the gold and silver, and all the vessels that
were found in the house of the Lord
In ( 2 Chronicles 25:24 ) it is added, "with Obededom", who, and his family, had the care of them by lot, see ( 1 Chronicles 26:15 )

and in the treasures of the king's house;
which were also spoiled and plundered:

and hostages;
either such as the king of Judah had taken from Edom, as pledges of their fidelity, that they might not rebel; or which the king of Israel took of Judah, even sons of the princes, as the Targum, for security, that they would give him no more trouble:

and returned to Samaria;
without attempting to bring the kingdom of Judah into subjection to him, which he might suppose he could not hold, and having enough to do with the Syrians, his avowed enemies.
