What does Daniel 6:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Daniel 6:6

Then these presidents and princes assembled together to the
king
Having consulted the matter, and agreed upon and formed a scheme among themselves, and drawn up a bill or decree in form, ready to be signed by the king, whom they hoped to persuade to it; and for that end they got together, and went in a body to him. The word F2 signifies to assemble in a tumultuous and noisy way; they thought, by their number and noise, their bustle and bluster, to carry their point. Ben Melech compares it with ( Psalms 2:2 ) : and said thus unto him, O King Darius, live for ever;
this they said as courtiers, professing subjection to him, and affection for him, wishing him health, long life, and happiness.
