What does Psalm 22:18 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 22:18

They part my garments among them
Such as died the death of the cross were crucified naked F8, and their clothes were the perquisites of the executioners; there were four soldiers concerned in the crucifixion of Christ, and these parted his garments into four parts, and everyone took his part;

and cast lots on my vesture;
which was a seamless coat, wove from the top to the bottom; and therefore, not willing to rend it, they cast lots upon it who should have it; all this was exactly fulfilled in Christ, ( John 19:23 John 19:24 ) .
