Strong's Hebrew 983: A place of refuge, safety, safely
(9) Glory.--Heb., khabod; but probably the poet wrote khabed, i.e., liver, or (comp. "reins" above, and the common use of the word "bowels") heart. The LXX. paraphrase tongue. The passage was so quoted in Acts 2:25. (Comp. Psalm 57:8; Psalm 108:1.) "With the best member that I have" (Prayer Book).

Shall rest in hope.--This follows the Vulg. The LXX. also have "shall tabernacle in hope." The true rendering, however, is shall rest in security. In "heart, soul, flesh," the poet comprises the whole living man. (Comp. 1Thessalonians 5:23.) The psalmist feels that the body must share with the soul the immunity from evil which is insured by fellowship with God. Carried out to its full issue, the logical conclusion of this is the doctrine of immortality; but we must not see a conscious reference to it here.

Verse 9. - Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth. The thought of God's continual presence at his right hand causes David's "heart" to be "glad," and his "glory" - i.e. his soul, or spirit (Genesis 49:6), man's true glory - to rejoice. My flesh also shall rest in hope. His "flesh" - his corporeal nature, united closely with his "heart" and "spirit" - rests, and will rest, secure, confident that God will watch over it, and make the whole complex man - body, soul, and spirit - to "dwell in safety" (Psalm 4:8).
