(A)Remember the days of old;
    consider the years of many generations;
(B)ask your father, and he will show you,
    your elders, and they will tell you.
When the Most High (C)gave to the nations their inheritance,
    when he (D)divided mankind,
he fixed the borders[a] of the peoples
    according to the number of the sons of God.[b]
But the Lord's portion is his people,
    Jacob his allotted heritage.
