What does Acts 14:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 14:5

And when there was an assault made
Or a strong bias and inclination were in the minds,

both of the Gentiles, and also of the Jews, with their rulers;
who encouraged them in it:

to use them despitefully, and to stone them;
not only to give them reproachful language, but to smite, buffet, and scourge them, and to stone them for blasphemy, which was a punishment among the Jews for such causes.
