SCRIPTURE REFERENCE AND SPECIAL NOTES

{1](1 Sam. 26:19-20; NLT) But now let my lord the king listen to his servant. If the LORD has stirred you up against me, then let him accept my offering. But if this is simply a human scheme, then may those involved be cursed by the LORD. For you have driven me from my home, so I can no longer live among the LORD's people and worship as I should. 20 Must I die on foreign soil, far from the presence of the LORD? Why has the king of Israel come out to search for a single flea? Why does he hunt me down like a partridge on the mountains?"
{2] Line. Lines were used for measuring and dividing land; and hence the word came to denote a portion or inheritance measured out; a possession.
{3] Reins. My inward thought and affections, inspired and moved by the Holy Spirit.
{4] (Ex. 23:13) And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention of the name of other gods, neither let it be heard out of thy mouth.
{5] (Acts 2:25-28) For David says of Him: I saw the Lord ever before me; because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken. 26 Therefore my heart was glad, and my tongue rejoiced. Moreover my flesh will rest in hope, 27 because You will not leave my soul in Hades, or allow Your Holy One to see decay. 28 You have revealed the paths of life to me; You will fill me with gladness in Your presence.
{6] (Acts 13:35) Therefore He also says in another passage, You will not allow Your Holy One to see decay.
{7] (Matt. 19:17) "Why do you ask Me about what is good?" He said to him. "There is only One who is good. If you want to enter into life, keep the commandments."
{8] (Ps. 11:2-3) For look, the wicked string the bow; they put the arrow on the bowstring to shoot from the shadows at the upright

in heart. 3When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?"
{9] (Lev. 19:2) "Speak to the entire Israelite community and tell them: Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.
{10] (Ex. 19:6) and you will be My kingdom of priests and My holy nation. These are the words that you are to say to the Israelites."
{11] (1 Pe. 2:9) But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His possession, so that you may proclaim the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.
{12] (Rom. 12:2) Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.
{13] (Josh. 13:14, 23) He did not give any inheritance to the tribe of Levi. This was its inheritance, just as He had promised: the offerings made by fire to the Lord, the God of Israel. 23 The border of the Reubenites was the Jordan and its plain. This was the inheritance of the Reubenites by their clans, with the cities and their villages.
{14] (Deut. 19:14) "You must not move your neighbor's boundary marker, established at the start in the inheritance you will receive in the land the Lord your God is giving you to possess.
{15] (1 Pe. 1:3) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
{16] (Ps. 17:15) But I will see Your face in righteousness; when I awake, I will be satisfied with Your presence.
{17] (Ps. 73:24-26) You guide me with Your counsel, and afterwards You will take me up in glory. 25 Whom do I have in heaven but You? And I desire nothing on earth but You. 26 My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart, my portion forever.
