57–60. Thou art my portion, O LORD (cf. 73:26; 142:5; see also Num 18:20; Josh 13:33). If the Lord God is all we have, fear not: He is all we need. Martin Luther used to counsel every Christian to answer all temptations with the words, “I am a Christian.” That is equal to saying to temptation, Thou art my portion, O LORD. Temptation flees from us when we find in God everything we need. I entreated thy favor with my whole heart. The Hebrew expresses great earnestness, humility, and supplication. I thought on my ways … I made haste, and delayed not to keep thy commandments.
