What does Luke 19:25 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 19:25

And they said unto him
The bystanders;

Lord, he hath ten pounds;
which they say either through envy, at his superior gifts, and usefulness; for it is generally the lot of the most eminent and useful servants of Christ to be envied by others; or in surprise, as wondering at the conduct of Christ in giving more to such, who had so much already. The Ethiopic version reads the words by way of interrogation, "hath he not ten pounds?" is not that enough? why should he have more? This verse is left out in Beza's most ancient copy. However, it is rightly put into a parenthesis in our version; for the following verse is strictly connected with ( Luke 19:24 ) and contains a reason of what is there ordered.
