CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Portion of Jacob is not like them - Every nation had its tutelary god; this was its portion; in reference to this God says Deuteronomy 4:19, "He has divided the sun, moon, and stars, to all the nations under the heaven."

For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.
LORD, you alone are my portion and my cup; you make my lot secure.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Remember the nation you purchased long ago, the people of your inheritance, whom you redeemed-- Mount Zion, where you dwelt.
You are my portion, LORD; I have promised to obey your words.
I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things.
No one is like you, LORD; you are great, and your name is mighty in power.
