What does Nehemiah 9:5 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 9:5

Then the Levites, Jeshua
Or, then the Levites, even Jeshua:

and Kadmiel, Bani, Hashabniah, Sherebiah, Hodijah, Shebaniah, and
Pethahiah;
the same as before, with a little variation of their names, and perhaps some of them might have two names:

and said;
to the men that stood and confessed their sins, ( Nehemiah 9:2 )

stand up;
for though they are before said to stand, yet, through shame and confusion of face, and awe of the Divine Majesty, might be fallen on their faces to the ground:

and bless the Lord your God for ever and ever;
for all the great and good things he had done for them, notwithstanding their sins; and particularly for his pardoning grace and mercy they had reason to hope for:

and blessed be thy glorious name, which is exalted above all blessing
and praise:
the glory of which name, nature, and perfections of his, cannot be set forth by the highest praises of men, and the largest ascriptions of blessing and honour to him.
