The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

16:5 mine inheritance. Jesus, in His humanity, had no inheritance, not even “where to lay His head” (Matthew 8:20). Nevertheless, He had a “goodly heritage” (Psalm 16:6), because His Father had promised “the nations for thine inheritance” (Psalm 2:8).

16:5 my cup. The Father’s promise, however, involved Christ first drinking a very bitter “cup” (Matthew 26:39).
