Yahweh is my heritage (Ps 16:5-16:6)

“Yahweh is my chosen portion.

Yahweh is my cup.

You hold my lot!

The boundary lines have fallen

For me in pleasant places.

I have a goodly heritage.”

Instead of idols, the psalmist has chosen Yahweh as his portion. Yahweh is his cup. He is sticking with his lot. Thus his boundary lines have fallen into pleasant places. His land is good as he has a good heritage in Yahweh.
