What does Numbers 19:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 19:8

And he that burneth her shall wash his clothes in water
In forty seahs of water, as the Targum of Jonathan: this shows that one different from this is designed in ( Numbers 19:7 ) ; and that this is one distinct from him that sprinkled the blood, ( Numbers 19:4 Numbers 19:5 ) ;

and bathe his flesh in water:
in a like quantity, as the above Targum:

and shall be unclean until the even:
and, though washed, might not go into the camp until that time: this may signify, as before, that though the crucifixion of Christ was a very great sin, and done by wicked hands, yet was pardonable through the very blood that was shed by them, ( Acts 2:23 Acts 2:36 Acts 2:38 Acts 2:41 ) .
