What does John 10:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 10:26

But ye believe not
In me, as the Messiah:

because ye are not of my sheep;
they were not among the sheep given him by his Father, were they, they would have come to him; that is, have believed in him, according to ( John 6:37 ) , they were not the chosen of God, predestinated unto eternal life; for as many as are ordained of God to eternal happiness, do believe in God's own time, ( Acts 13:48 ) ; but these not being the elect of God, had not the faith of God's elect. Christ, as the omniscient God, knew this, that they were not the chosen of God; for he was present, when the names of God's elect were written in the book of life; had they been his sheep, he must have known them, for he knows all the sheep, and calls them by name; had they been given him by the Father, he must have known it, and would have owned them as such; but so it was not, and therefore they were left to hardness and unbelief:

as l said unto you:
which seems to refer to what follows, since he had said before, that the sheep bear the voice of the shepherd, and follow him, and that he knows them, ( John 10:4 John 10:14 ) . This clause is omitted in the Vulgate Latin version, and in Nonnus, but is in the Greek copies, and Oriental versions.
