What does 2 Kings 22:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 22:5

And let them deliver it into the hand of the doers of the work,
that have the oversight of the house of the Lord
That were overseers of the workmen, whose names are mentioned, ( 2 Chronicles 34:12 ) into their hands the money was to be delivered by the high priest, when he had taken the account of it, and perhaps along with the king's scribe, see ( 2 Kings 12:10 ) ,

and let them give it to the doers of the work, which is in the house of
the Lord, to repair the breaches of the house
as their wages for their work; it seems it had not been repaired from the times of Jehoash, a space of two hundred and eighteen years, according to the Jewish chronology F13; but Kimchi and Abarbinel make it two hundred and twenty four.
