What does Numbers 22:26 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 22:26

And the angel of the Lord went further, and stood in a narrow
place
More narrow than the other, at a further distance:

where was no way to turn, either to the right hand or to the left;
it was so strait and close a place that the angel filled the whole breadth of it, that there was no passing him; so that there was no getting forward nor backward; not forward, because the angel filled up the way, and there was no slipping by him; nor backward, because it could not turn itself to the right or left.
