What does Numbers 14:38 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Numbers 14:38

But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb the son of Jephunneh,
&c.] Here Joshua is set first, as Caleb is in ( Numbers 14:30 ) ; which shows that they were equal in dignity, and therefore are indifferently put, sometimes the one first, and sometimes the other: [which were] of the men that went to search the land;
were two of the spies, and were for the tribes of Judah and Ephraim, ( Numbers 13:6 Numbers 13:8 ) , lived [still];
were not stricken with death, when the other spies were; though perhaps upon the very spot, and in the same place, and among them, when they were struck dead; but these remained alive, and continued many years after, and entered the good land, and possessed it.
