What does Luke 23:49 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 23:49

And all his acquaintance
That were related to him in a natural, or in a spiritual sense, or both, as his own mother, and beloved disciple John, who were both present, ( John 19:26 ) or those that were known unto him, and familiar with him, who attended on his ministry, and often conversed, and were intimately acquainted with him:

and the women that followed him from Galilee;
among whom were Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Joses, and Salome the mother of Zebedee's children:

stood afar off;
from the cross:

beholding these things;
with wonder, as well as looking upon their dear suffering Lord, with aching hearts, and flowing eyes.
