What does Psalm 16:10 mean?

One thousand years before Jesus died on the cross, David predicted Jesus' resurrection. He prophesied that the Lord would not abandon Jesus' soul in sheol, the vague Hebrew concept of afterlife. Further, the Lord would not allow Jesus, the "holy one," to undergo corruption. In his address to the Jews on the Day of Pentecost, the apostle Peter applied the words of this verse to Jesus' resurrection (Acts 2:22–32). Paul quoted Psalm 16:10 at Antioch (Acts 13:35–37).

Jesus arose in a glorified body, one that was incapable of dying. He was able to eat food and appear in a locked room (Luke 24:28–42). He arose the third day after His crucifixion and was seen by Peter, the Twelve, 500 hundred believers, James, all the apostles, and Paul (1 Corinthians 15:3– 8). Romans 4:24–25 affirms that God "raised from the dead Jesus our Lord, who was delivered up for our trespasses and raised for our justification." Because Jesus lives, every believer will live also (John 11:25).
