Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Psalms 16:9

_ _ glory — as heart (Psalms 7:5), for self. In Acts 2:26, after the Septuagint, “my tongue” as “the glory of the frame” — the instrument for praising God.

_ _ flesh — If taken as opposed to soul (Psalms 16:10), it may mean the body; otherwise, the whole person (compare Psalms 63:1; Psalms 84:2).

_ _ rest in hope — (compare Margin).

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Psalms 16:8-11.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Psalms 16:9

My glory — My tongue, which is a man's glory and privilege, above all other living creatures. Rejoiceth — Declares my inward joy. For this word signifies not so much eternal joy, as the outward demonstrations of it. My flesh — My body shall quietly rest in the grave. Shall rest — in confident assurance of its incorruption there, and of its resurrection to an immortal life: the flesh or body is in itself, but a dead lump of clay; yet hope is here ascribed to it figuratively, as it is to the brute creatures, Romans 8:19.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Psalms 16:9

Therefore (h) my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

(h) That is, I rejoice both in body and in soul.
