What does Judges 4:23 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Judges 4:23

So God subdued on that day Jabin king of Canaan before the
children, of Israel.
] Freed Israel from subjection to him and delivered him into the hands of the Israelites; for Josephus F15 says, that as Barak went towards Hazor, he met Jabin, and slew him; who perhaps having heard of the defeat of his army under Sisera, came forth with another against Israel, which being overcome by them, he was slain, and the city utterly destroyed, as the same writer says; but by what follows it seems rather that the total conquest of him was afterwards and gradually accomplished.
