“Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.”
King James Version (KJV)
2:27 Thou wilt not leave my soul in hades - The invisible world. But it does not appear, that ever our Lord went into hell. His soul, when it was separated from the body, did not go thither, but to paradise, #Luke 23:43|. The meaning is, Thou wilt not leave my soul in its separate state, nor suffer my body to be corrupted.
Ac 2:27 Not leave my soul in hell. In Hades, the unseen abode of the dead. The meaning is that he would not remain under the power of death. See Ps 16:10. David did not speak this of himself, but of the Son of David. See Ac 2:29. Thine Holy One. The Lord Jesus. The promised Messiah.
