Deuteronomy 32:9; Psalm 28:9; Psalm 33:12; Psalm 78:62; Psalm 94:14; Jeremiah 10:16; Zechariah 2:12

But the Lord’s portion is his people,

Jacob his allotted heritage.

Oh, save your people and bless zyour heritage!

aBe their shepherd and bcarry them forever.

12  xBlessed is the nation whose God is the Lord,

the people whom he has ychosen as his heritage!

62  He hgave his people over to the sword

and ivented his wrath on his heritage.

14  mFor the Lord will not forsake his npeople;

he will not abandon his nheritage;

16  Not like these is he who is ithe portion of Jacob,

for he is the one who formed all things,

jand Israel is the tribe of his inheritance;

kthe Lord of hosts is his name.

12 hAnd the Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again ichoose Jerusalem.
