#Psalmtweet #Psalter 16:5

The rest is on the word 'my cup'.

יְֽהוָ֗ה מְנָת־חֶלְקִ֥י וְכוֹסִ֑י
אַ֝תָּ֗ה תּוֹמִ֥יךְ גּוֹרָלִֽי
5 Yahweh is the portion of my share and my cup.
You yourself maintain my lot.

 The higher tessitura return to the tonic is shared with 709 other verses (about 15%) in the three books. Part of this psalm is set by Handel in the Messiah, but I didn't chose that as my verse today.  The psalm is sung here. If this link does not work for you - general read access to the whole DVD should be available here. Then you can explore all this wealth of history for the 20th century work of Suzanne Haïk-Vantoura.
