Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Rejoiced (ἠγαλλιάσατο)

Rev., was glad. See on 1 Peter 1:6.

Shall rest (κατασκηνώσει)

See on nests, Matthew 8:20. Better, as Rev., dwell. Lit., dwell in a tent or tabernacle. Rendered lodge, Matthew 13:32; Mark 4:32; Luke 13:19. It is a beautiful metaphor. My flesh shall encamp on hope; pitch its tent there to rest through the night of death, until the morning of resurrection.

In hope ( ἐπ' ἐλπίδι)

Lit., on hope: resting on the hope of resurrection; his body being poetically conceived as hoping.
