What does Luke 9:57 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Luke 9:57

And it came to pass, as they went in the way
From one village of the Samaritans, to the other; though if this is the same history related in ( Matthew 8:19 ) it was as Christ went from Capernaum to the sea side, in order to go to the other side of it; and must be inserted here, without regard to the order of time:

a certain man said unto him;
if the same as in Matthew, he is there said to be a "Scribe";

Lord, I will follow thee, wheresoever thou goest.
The Arabic and Ethiopic versions read these words by way of question, "Lord, shall I not follow thee wheresoever thou goest?" (See Gill on Matthew 8:19).
