What does Exodus 1:7 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Exodus 1:7

And the children of Israel were fruitful
In their offspring; became like fruitful trees, as the word signifies:

and increased abundantly;
like creeping things, or rather like fishes, which increase very much, see ( Genesis 1:20 )

and multiplied;
became very numerous, whereby the promises made to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, were fulfilled:

and waxed exceeding mighty;
were hale, and strong, of good constitutions, able bodied men, and so more dreaded by the Egyptians: a heap of words is here used to express the vast increase of the people of Israel in Egypt:

and the land was filled with them;
not the whole land of Egypt, but the land of Goshen: at first they were seated in a village in that country, but now they were spread throughout the towns and cities in it.
