24 “1But aGod raised Him up again, putting an end to the 2agony of death, since it bwas impossible for Him to be held 3in its power.
25 “For David says of Him,
‘aI saw the Lord always in my presence;
For He is at my right hand, so that I will not be shaken.
26 ‘Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue exulted;
Moreover my flesh also will live in hope;
27 Because You will not abandon my soul to aHades,
bNor 1allow Your 2Holy One to 3undergo decay.
28 ‘You have made known to me the ways of life;
You will make me full of gladness with Your presence.’
29 “1Brethren, I may confidently say to you regarding the apatriarch David that he both bdied and cwas buried, and dhis tomb is 2with us to this day.
30 “And so, because he was aa prophet and knew that bGod had sworn to him with an oath to seat one 1of his descendants on his throne,
31 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of 1the Christ, that aHe was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh 2suffer decay.
32 “This Jesus aGod raised up again, to which we are all bwitnesses.
