The idea of studying Psalm 16 by starting at the beginning and working my way through the verses in order presented a difficulty, namely dealing with the “me” in Verse 1.
So, I decided to start by using a different approach, to come into the study from the point of understanding that God has blessed us to have on this side of the cross. We are privileged to see the fulfillment of Messianic prophecies in what Christ Jesus did for us! We have his ministry accounts recorded for us in the new testament and, in it also, the quotes from Psalm 16 that Peter and Paul made.
And the passage Peter was referring to wherein Paul quoted just the part about Jesus not seeing corruption:
To me, the new testament is full of golden crops always ready to be harvested. But the most golden passages and verses are those that show the fulfillment of Messianic prophecies. Seems to me now that whenever fulfillment scriptures are a part of a topic of study that they should be harvested first. And that is why I have gathered the two new testament quotes above. Lord willing, I can soon take a good, long look at Peter’s and then Paul’s applications of their respective Psalm 16 quotes.
