16:1 (Michtam of David.) Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my a trust.

    (a) He shows that we cannot call on God unless we trust in him.
16:2 [O my soul], thou hast said unto the LORD, Thou [art] my Lord: my b goodness [extendeth] not to thee;
    (b) Though we cannot enrich God, yet we must bestow God's gifts for the use of his children.
16:4 Their c sorrows shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after] another [god]: d their drink offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.
    (c) As grief of conscience and miserable destruction.
    (d) He would neither by outward profession nor in heart, nor in mouth consent to their idolatries.
16:6 The e lines are fallen unto me in pleasant [places]; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
    (e) With which my portion is measured.
16:8 I have set the LORD always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I g shall not be moved.
    (g) The faithful are sure to persevere to the end.
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.

16:10 For thou i wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.

    (i) This is chiefly meant by Christ, by whose resurrection all his members have immortality.
16:11 Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy k presence [is] fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore.
    (k) Where God favours there is perfect happiness.
