What does 2 Samuel 16:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Samuel 16:15

And Absalom, and all the people, the men of Israel, came to
Jerusalem
At the same time that David and his people came to Bahurim; which, as Josephus F26 says, was a place near to Jerusalem; and, according to Bunting F1, was little more than a mile from it; though elsewhere F2 he makes it three miles; so that had not David made the hasty flight he did, he had fallen into the hands of Absalom:

and Ahithophel with him:
a famous counsellor, and who had been of David's privy council, and chief in it, see ( 2 Samuel 15:12 2 Samuel 15:31 ) and whom David refers to in ( Psalms 55:12-14 ) .
