What does Leviticus 24:3 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Leviticus 24:3

Without the vail of the testimony
That is, on the outside of the vail which divided between the holy and holy of holies, and which was before the ark in which the testimony or law was: in the tabernacle of the congregation;
which the apostle calls the first, namely, the holy place in which the candlestick, with its lamps, stood, ( Hebrews 9:2 ) ; shall Aaron order it from the evening unto the morning, before the Lord
continually,
that is, the lamp or lamps, or candlestick, in which they were, or the light of them; his business was, and so every priest's that succeeded him, to supply the lamps with oil, to dress, him, and snuff them, that they might burn clear, and burn always, and that before the Lord, in the presence of the Lord: [it shall be] a statute for ever in your generations;
until the Messiah should come, the true light, which would put out all such typical ones, and by his Gospel spread light in all his churches throughout the world; (See Gill on Exodus 27:20) and (See Gill on Exodus 27:21).
