because you will not abandon me to the grave, nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT ABANDON MY SOUL TO HADES, NOR ALLOW YOUR HOLY ONE TO UNDERGO DECAY.
For you will not leave my soul among the dead or allow your Holy One to rot in the grave.
I know you'll never dump me in Hades; I'll never even smell the stench of death.
For you will not let my soul be in hell and you will not give up your Holy One to destruction.
For you will not abandon my soul to Hades, or let your Holy One experience corruption.
For You will not leave my soul in Hades, Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.

1 tn Or “will not abandon my soul to Hades.” Often “Hades” is the equivalent of the Hebrew term Sheol, the place of the dead.
2 tn Grk “to see,” but the literal translation of the phrase “to see decay” could be misunderstood to mean simply “to look at decay,” while here “see decay” is really figurative for “experience decay.”
