My Inheritance

“The LORD is my chosen portion and my cup; you hold my lot.” (Psalm 16:5)

The Lord is …

  • the substance of my inheritance. (“The Lord is my chosen portion”)
  • the chooser of my inheritance. (“my chosen portion,” cf. Psa. 47:4)
  • the measure of my inheritance. (“and my cup”)
  • the security of my inheritance. (“you hold my lot.”)

Therefore, come what may, I can say: “The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.” (v.6)
