What does Genesis 29:6 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 29:6

And he said unto them, [is] he well?
&c.] In good health, he and his family, or "is peace unto him" F2; does he enjoy prosperity and happiness? for this word was used in the eastern nations, and still is, for all kind of felicity: and they said, [he is] well;
or has peace; he and his family are in good health, enjoying all the comforts and blessings of life: and, behold, Rachel his daughter cometh with the sheep;
at that very instant she was coming out of the city with her father's flock of sheep, to water them at the well; an instance of great humility, diligence, and simplicity; this was very providential to Jacob.
