What does Hebrews 11:36 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Hebrews 11:36

And others had trial of cruel mockings
As Samson by the Philistines; Elisha by the children, whom the bears devoured; Jeremiah by Pashur, and others; the Jews by Sanballat and Tobiah, when building the temple; the prophets, whom God sent to the Jews, as his messengers, ( Judges 16:25-28 ) ( 2 Kings 2:23 2 Kings 2:24 ) ( Jeremiah 20:7 Jeremiah 20:8 ) ( 4:1-6 ) ( 2 Chronicles 36:15 2 Chronicles 36:16 ) . and scourgings;
or smitings, as Jeremiah and Micaiah, ( Jeremiah 20:22 ) ( 2 Chronicles 18:23 2 Chronicles 18:24 ) .

yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment;
as Joseph, Samson, and Jeremiah, ( Genesis 39:20 ) ( Judges 16:21 ) ( Jeremiah 20:2 ) ( 37:15 ) . Now of these things they had trial, or experience; their graces were tried by them, and they patiently endured them.
