What does Daniel 4:9 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Daniel 4:9

O Belteshazzar, master of the magicians
So he called him, either because he excelled them in knowledge, and was greater than they, as Jacchiades; though not of their rank and order, which Daniel would have scorned to have been among, and reckoned of; so that this would have been no compliment, but a grief unto him; or because he was appointed by the king chief over them, and even over their governors; (See Gill on Daniel 2:48): because I know that the spirit of the holy gods is in thee;
(See Gill on Daniel 4:8); and no secret troubleth thee;
any ways perplexes thy mind to find it out; it is easy to thee to come at; it gives thee no manner of trouble to get knowledge of it; there is no secret hidden from thee; all is plain before thee, and with the utmost facility canst thou reveal it: tell me the visions of my dream that I have seen;
that is, the meaning of them; for the king remembered this his dream, and afterwards tells it very particularly: and the interpretation of it;
it may be rendered, "that is, the interpretation of it" F8; for that only was what the king wanted.
