Wesley's Notes for Psalms 16:10


16:10 Hell - In the state of the dead. Holy one - Me thy holy son, whom thou hast sanctified and sent into the world. It is peculiar to Christ, to be called the holy one of God. To see - To be corrupted or putrefied in the grave, as the bodies of others are.


Discussion for Psalms 16

  • A disciple
    "Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust." There's a lot of practical understanding of life that is made light of, under a misconception of what is a spiritual life. e.g.; so much of what David wrote has to do with our life in the world; such as it is; with the lessons conveying the spiritual message. If this life is really so unimportant why does Jesus heal the sick, and raise the dead?
  • Atta Oppong Boahen
    The Lord is good all the time...is good. The flesh lust against the spirit and vice versa. This conflict is fueled by the deception of unseen Spiritual forces. The Bible says that humans in nature wrestle not against flesh and blood, but the forces in the atmosphere and around that wants to turn people from the truth. These forces known as the old serpent deceives many that God does not exist

    Mild Bill; Hello Brother! I too knew a young man once, who by his own selfishness, stupidity and indolence was driven by his sins to the very brink of destruction; but the Saviour found him and saved him from his sins! The message was clear and by an audible voice; You are not fit for the presence of God! And he knew that if he didn't repent it would be hell for sure! The Lord Jesus is my Saviour!
  • Mild Bill
    There is not a 16th, of any month that goes by, when I do not remember that Almighty God, on this day, interceded for me specifically, to "maintain my lot" in this world. I will never forget he saved me and loves me, though I am an unworthy sinner, he is faithful to his word and work. " knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentence?" Romans 2:4
