What does Genesis 24:64 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 24:64

And Rebekah lifted up her eyes
And looked about: and when she saw Isaac;
whom she suspected him to be, and therefore inquired of the servant, who told her who he was: she lighted off the camel;
or "fell" F23 from it, not accidentally, or through surprise, but willingly, and in honour to Isaac, as was customary; for had she sat on her camel when she met him, it would not have seemed respectful enough to him; though Jarchi thinks she did not get off, but only bowed herself upon the camel, when she came near him.
