Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 16:11

_ _ Raised from the dead, he shall die no more; death hath no more dominion over him.

_ _ Thou wilt show me — guide me to attain.

_ _ the path of life — or, “lives” — the plural denoting variety and abundance — immortal blessedness of every sort — as “life” often denotes.

_ _ in thy presence — or, “before Thy faces.” The frequent use of this plural form for “faces” may contain an allusion to the Trinity (Numbers 6:25, Numbers 6:26; Psalms 17:15; Psalms 31:16).

_ _ at thy right hand — to which Christ was exalted (Psalms 110:1; Acts 2:33; Colossians 3:1; Hebrews 1:3). In the glories of this state, He shall see of the travail (Isaiah 53:10, Isaiah 53:11; Philippians 2:9) of His soul, and be satisfied.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 16:11

Life — Thou wilt raise me from the grave, and conduct me to the place and state of everlasting felicity. Presence — In that heavenly paradise, where thou art gloriously present, where thou dost clearly and fully discover the light of thy countenance; whereas in this life thou hidest thy face and shewest us only thy back — parts. Right — hand — Which he mentions as a place of the greatest honour, the place where the saints are placed at the last day, and where Christ himself is said to sit, Psalms 110:1. Pleasures — All our joys are empty and defective: But in heaven there is fulness of joy. Our pleasures here are transient and momentary; but those at God's right hand are pleasures for evermore. For they are the pleasures of immortal souls, in the enjoyment of an eternal God.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes
