Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Acts 13:34-37

_ _ now no more to return to corruption — that is, to the grave where death reigns; and compare Romans 6:9, “Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more, death hath no more dominion over him.

_ _ I will give you the sure mercies of David — (Isaiah 55:3). The word rendered “mercies” is peculiar, denoting the sanctity of them, as comprehending the whole riches of the new covenant; while the other word, “sure,” points to the certainty with which they would, through David’s Seed, be at length all substantiated. See on John 1:14. But how do these words prove the resurrection of Christ? “They presuppose it; for since an eternal kingdom was promised to David, the Ruler of this kingdom could not remain under the power of death. But to strengthen the indefinite prediction by one more definite, the apostle adduces Psalms 16:10, of which Peter had given the same explanation (see on Acts 2:27; Acts 2:30, Acts 2:31), both apostles denying the possibility of its proper reference to David” [Olshausen].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Acts 13:14-41.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Acts 13:34

No more to return to corruption — That is, to die no more. I will give you the sure mercies of David — The blessings promised to David in Christ. These are sure, certain, firm, solid, to every true believer in him. And hence the resurrection of Christ necessarily follows; for without this, those blessings could not be given. Isaiah 55:3.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Acts 13:34

And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead, [now] no more to return to corruption, he said on this wise, I will give you the (p) sure mercies of David.

(p) The Greeks call those things "holy things" which the Hebrews call "gracious bounties": and they are called David's bounties in the passive voice, because God bestowed them upon David. Moreover, they are termed "sure", after the manner of speech which the Hebrews use, who terms those things "sure" which are steady and certain, and such things which never alter or change.
