Verse of the Day (August 20, 2020) #BMSeminary – {Psalm 16} The attitude of the righteous man is described in life (vv. 1–8) and death (vv. 9–11). In life, his attitude is one of trust (v. 1), gratefulness for God’s goodness (v. 2), delight in God’s people (v. 3), separation from idolatrous worship (v. 4; cf. Ex. 23:13; Deut. 12:3), satisfaction in God’s gracious provisions (vv. 5, 6), praise for the Lord’s counsel (v. 7), and steadfastness in spiritual devotion (v. 8). In facing death, the righteous man rejoices and is hopeful (v. 9). He is confident that God will preserve him from the decay of death and that death will not result in his corruption (v. 10). Rather, he will travel down the path of life, that is, the path leading to life, which will terminate in God’s joyful presence (v. 11). David’s confidence in his ultimate destiny is valid for him (and for all believers) only because Christ has traveled down that path and paved the way for all who believe in Him (Acts 2:25–28). [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
