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.

    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!

    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
