What does Genesis 26:14 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 26:14

For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds
Many flocks of sheep, and herds of cattle, of oxen, asses and camels, in which the riches of men in those times and countries chiefly lay: and great store of servants;
to look after his flocks and herds, and fields; or "much husbandry" F6; Jarchi interprets it much tillage; as, much land, many farms, fields, and vineyards, and the like; to cultivate which required many servants: and the Philistines envied him;
for his prosperity and success, that his land should bring forth so plentifully, and that he should have such an increase of flocks, and herds, and servants, which made him so very significant great, and honourable.
