    meant it to remain

    "That I will gladly do," cried the hero; and, in a moment, the giant bent his knees and placed the load of the heavens upon the shoulders of Hercules. There he meant it to remain, for he was a cunning giant, and had grown tired of his weary burden.

    Does the, "meant it to remain", mean, "told the Hercules to remain"?

    Please help me.

    Re: meant it to remain

    The giant intended (meant) that it (the load) would stay on Hercules' shoulders.
