What does Judges 19:10 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Judges 19:10

But the man would not tarry that night
He was determined upon his journey; he perceived there was no end of the solicitations of his father-in-law, and did not know how long he intended to detain him, and therefore was resolved not to hearken to him any longer:

but he rose up and departed;
rose up from his seat, took his leave of his father-in-law, and proceeded on his journey:

and came over against Jebus, which is Jerusalem;
which was then called Jebus, because inhabited by the Jebusites, as appears from the following verse; this was about six miles from Bethlehem F16; so far they were come on in their journey homewards:

and there were with him two asses saddled;
which he brought with him when he came to Bethlehem, ( Judges 19:3 ) now said to be "saddled", either for him and his concubine to ride on; or they were bound or girt, as the word signifies, being loaded with bread, and wine, and provender; or it may be one of them was for him and his concubine to ride on by turns, and the other to carry the provisions:

and his concubine also was with him;
matters being now made up between them, she had agreed to go with him, and did, which was the end of his coming to her father's house; and therefore this is observed on that account, as well as for what follows in the tragical part of this history.
