Note 2: (our lot is cast in a goodly heritage)
This is from the Bible, Psalm 16:7, but it is from the Prayer Book version. This is the Psalm from the King James Version, which places the quotation in Psalm 16:6.
|16:1||Michtam of David. Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.|
|16:2||O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;|
|16:3||But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.|
|16:4||Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.|
|16:5||The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.|
|16:6||The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.|
|16:7||I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.|
|16:8||I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.|
|16:9||Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.|
|16:10||For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.|
|16:11||Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.|
