What does Nehemiah 13:28 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 13:28

And one of the sons of Joiada, the son of Eliashib the
high priest
A grandson of the high priest; for the high priest here is Eliashib, according to our version, and not Joiada his son, according to Dr. Prideaux F9; the person designed, Josephus F11 makes to be Manasseh, the brother of Jaddua the high priest: was

son in law to Sanballat the Horonite;
married a daughter of his, who was the avowed enemy of the Jewish nation; and for whom, according to the same writer, Sanballat obtained leave of Alexander to build a temple on Mount Gerizim; but this is to protract the age of Nehemiah and Sanballat to too great a length; besides, Eliashib seems to have been now high priest, and not even his son Joiada, and much less Jaddua, a grandson of Joiada:

therefore I chased him from me;
drove him from his court, suffered him not to minister at the altar; banished him from the city, as Jarchi, and even from the land of Judea.
