Psalm 16 is YAHSHUA speaking to YAH and asking for life and trusting He will receive it because of His obedience to the Law. YAHSHUA’s path to Life spoken of in verse 11 is the Law which was given to YAHSHAU as His path to Life.
The Law was YAH’s promise to YAHSHUA that if He gave His life to save us as required by the law, that YAH would raise YAHSHUA from the dead and not leave Him in Sheol or allow His body to see corruption. YAHSHUA had complete trust in this promise of life that was given to Him in the law, and prayed to YAH expressing that faith in this Psalm.
Green is for YAH
Red is for YAHSHUA
Blue is for believers
yellow is for bad
