For the LORD's portion is his people, Jacob his allotted inheritance.
King James Bible
For the LORD'S portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
American Standard Version
For Jehovah's portion is his people; Jacob is the lot of his inheritance.
Young's Literal Translation
For Jehovah's portion is His people, Jacob is the line of His inheritance.
Deuteronomy 32:9 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
The Lord's portion is his people - What an astonishing saying! As holy souls take God for their portion, so God takes them for his portion. He represents himself as happy in his followers; and they are infinitely happy in, and satisfied with, God as their portion. This is what is implied in being a saint. He who is seeking for an earthly portion, has little commerce with the Most High.
