What does Daniel 10:2 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Daniel 10:2

In those days I Daniel was mourning
Either on account of what had been revealed to him in the last vision or prophecy of the seventy weeks; by which it appeared what wickedness the people of the Jews would be guilty of in cutting off the Messiah; and what desolations would come upon their land, city, and temple, for such usage of him: as also because of the present case of his people; many of them continuing in the country of Babylon, when they had liberty to return to their land: or because of the hinderance the Jews met with in rebuilding their city and temple, who had returned thither; of which Daniel had an account, and which caused him to mourn in secret: and so he continued three full weeks;
or, "three weeks of days" F3; so called, to distinguish them from weeks of years, mentioned in the preceding chapter.
