CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Save thy people - Continue to preserve them from all their enemies; from idolatry, and from sin of every kind.
Bless thine inheritance - They have taken thee for their God; thou hast taken them for thy people.

Lift them up for ever - Maintain thy true Church; let no enemy prevail against it. Preserve and magnify them for ever. Lift them up: as hell is the bottomless pit in which damned spirits sink down for ever; or, as Chaucer says downe all downe; so heaven is an endless height of glory, in which there is an eternal rising or exaltation. Down, all down; up, all up; for ever and ever.

For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.
1 Kings 8:51
for they are your people and your inheritance, whom you brought out of Egypt, out of that iron-smelting furnace.
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance.
from tending the sheep he brought him to be the shepherd of his people Jacob, of Israel his inheritance.
