What does Psalm 118:20 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 118:20

This gate of the Lord, into which the righteous shall enter.
] This seems to be spoken by some other person or persons, distinct from David and the Messiah, pointing at some particular and principal gate, upon hearing the above word: by which is meant, not the gate of the house of the sanctuary of the Lord, as the Targum; but the Messiah himself, afterwards spoken of as the stone rejected by the builders, and made the head of the corner; who is the way of access to God; the door into the church or sheepfold; the strait gate that leads to eternal life; by which none but righteous persons enter into heaven; even such who are made righteous, through the imputation of his righteousness to them; see ( John 10:1 John 10:9 ) ( 14:4 ) ( Matthew 7:14 ) .
