What does 2 Kings 7:7 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Kings 7:7

Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight
Or in the dark, as the Targum; when the twilight was going off; so that the lepers came very quickly after they were gone, ( 2 Kings 7:5 )

and left their tents, and their horses, and their asses;
such was their fright, that they could not stay to loose their cattle, with which they might have made greater speed, but ran away on foot: and they left

even the camp as it was;
took nothing away with them, either money or provisions:

and fled for their life;
which they imagined to be in great danger.
