Can you help me with English?

The people were waiting for Zecharias, and wondered at his delay in the sanctuary.

What does the word "wondered" mean in this case?

Thank you!

    'Wondered' means, in this case, that the people noticed that Zecharias was unusually slow at emerging from the sanctuary, and they began to speculate - among themselves - about the reason for the delay.
