Possess the Land I’m giving you to possess.

How much of the land of Canaan has been taken?

13 Now Joshua was old and advanced in years, and the LORD said to him, “You are old and advanced in years, and there remains yet very much land to possess.

What specific regions are left to possess?

2 This is the land that yet remains: all the regions of the Philistines, and all those of the Geshurites 3 (from the Shihor, which is east of Egypt, northward to the boundary of Ekron, it is counted as Canaanite; there are five rulers of the Philistines, those of Gaza, Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gath, and Ekron), and those of the Avvim, 4 in the south, all the land of the Canaanites, and Mearah that belongs to the Sidonians, to Aphek, to the boundary of the Amorites, 5 and the land of the Gebalites, and all Lebanon, toward the sunrise, from Baal-gad below Mount Hermon to Lebo-hamath, 6 all the inhabitants of the hill country from Lebanon to Misrephoth-maim, even all the Sidonians.

Here are the Tribal Allotments
For reference, here is a map of Israel under David and Solomon

How are the Israelites to take the land?

I myself will drive them out from before the people of Israel.

So then, what does tribal allotment mean in the text? Are they getting the land?
אוֹרִישֵׁ֔

Only allot the land to Israel for an inheritance, as I have commanded you. 7 Now therefore divide this land for an inheritance to the nine tribes and half the tribe of Manasseh.”

Notice here in Chapter 13 that the tribes are allotted their portion in the land, but they have not yet conquered the territories fully.
