What does Isaiah 44:16 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Isaiah 44:16

He burneth part thereof in the fire
To warm himself with, as before: with part thereof he eateth flesh;
that is, with part of it he dresses flesh, and makes it fit to eat; unless the meaning is, with part of it he makes tables and trenchers to eat meat off of; but the former sense seems most likely, and agrees with what follows: he roasteth roast, and is satisfied;
he roasts his meat with it, and eats it when roasted, and is highly pleased and delighted with it, and he eats of it to his satisfaction: yea, he warmeth him, and saith, Aha;
an expression of joy and delight, being before a good fire in winter time: I am warm, I have seen the fire;
have felt it, and enjoyed the comfort of it, which has given a sensible pleasure.
