Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Thou wilt show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
 

16:9 my glory. Rendered as “tongue” by Peter, following the Septuagint. It is appropriate to equate the glory of Christ with His tongue, for “never man spake like this man” (John 7:46).

16:9 flesh also shall rest. This statement speaks prophetically of Christ’s burial in Joseph’s tomb.

16:10 to see corruption. His Spirit descended into Sheol, but He returned to raise His own resting body before His flesh could begin to decay.

16:11 at thy right hand. This is the first of twenty-one Biblical references to Christ ascending to the Father’s right hand following His resurrection. See note on Psalm 110:1.

Psalm 17 (title) Prayer of David. Although many of David’s psalms include prayers, three of them (Psalm 17, 86, 142) are specifically titled “A Prayer of David.” Like the other two, this psalm is full of heartfelt petitions.
