What does Genesis 36:35 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Genesis 36:35

And Husham died
As is thought, about A. M. 2219, above forty years after the death of Abraham, as computed by the above writer: and Hadad the son of Bedad (who smote Midian in the field of Moab)
reigned in his stead:
who he or his father were we have no other account, nor of this warlike action of his; probably the Midianites came out to invade him, hearing of which, he went out against them, and met with him in the fields of Moab, which were near to Midian, and fought them and conquered them: Jarchi says, the Midianites came out to make war against the Moabites, and the king of Edom went out to help the Moabites, and hence, he says, we learn, that Midian and Moab were near each other; and in the days of Balaam they made peace, that they might combine against Israel: this battle is supposed to be fought in the twelfth year of his reign; and it is thought to be in his reign that Esau came with his family and dwelt in Seir F12; though some place it later, either in the following reign, or in that of his successors {m}: and the name of his city [was] Avith:
where it was is not certain.
