What does Numbers 7:12 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 7:12

And he that offered his offering on the first day
Was he whose standard was pitched first, at the east, to the rising sun: and this

was Nahshon the son of Amminadab, of the tribe of Judah;
who was the prince and captain of that tribe, though the title is not here given him, as to the rest of the princes, this being left to be concluded from his offering first; for if they that offered after him were princes, he must needs be one; or it may be this title is omitted, because the chief prince, of the prince of the tribe of Judah, most peculiarly belongs to a greater Personage, even the Messiah, who was to spring, and did spring from that tribe, ( 1 Chronicles 5:2 ) ; and, as Baal Hatturim says, from Nahshon; and who also observes, that Ben Nahshon is the Messiah.
