See Scofield Note: "Ps 2:12"

O my soul, thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou art my Lord: my goodness extendeth not to thee;
But to the saints that are in the earth, and to the excellent, in whom is all my delight.
Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god: their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.
The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
I will bless the LORD, who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.
I have set the LORD always before me: because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
[2] thy flesh

The 16th Psalm is a prediction of the resurrection of the King. As a prophet David understood that, not at His first advent, but at some time subsequent to His death and resurrection Messiah would assume the Davidic throne. See Acts 2:25-31 Lk 1:32,33 Acts 15:13-17. See "Davidic Covenant," See Scofield Note: "2Sam 7:14"; "Kingdom (O.T.)," See Scofield Note: "Zech 12:8".

See Psa 22., next in order of the Messianic Psalms.

For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Margin hell

Heb. "Sheol," See Scofield Note: "Hab 2:5".

Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
