What does Joshua 19:49 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Joshua 19:49

And when they made an end of dividing the land for
inheritance by their coasts
That is, Eleazar, Joshua, and the ten men appointed for this, purpose; when all the lots were drawn, and the several inheritances which came up to them were divided among the families of the respective tribes, this work being finished:

the children of Israel gave an inheritance to Joshua the son of Nun
among them;
most interpreters observe the modesty of Joshua, that though the oldest and the greatest man in the nation, the chief governor, yet had his inheritance last of all; nor did he take any part to himself, it was given to him by the people, who had the whole land divided among them; in which he was a type of Christ; see ( 2 Corinthians 8:9 ) ( Philippians 2:6 Philippians 2:7 ) .
