Sefer Miktam ( מכתם) le' Daviyd (דוד) 大衛金詩

The hope of the set apart ones and Moshiach's Victory

Moshiach Arose! 

16:1 Be shomer over me, O EL: for in thee do I put my trust.

16:2 [O my nefesh], thou hast said unto YHWH (יהוה), Thou [art] My *YHWH: my goodness [extendeth] not to Thee;

16:3 [But] to the set apart ones that [are] in ha eretz, and [to] the excellent, in whom [is] all my delight.

16:4 Their sorrows shall be multiplied [that] hasten [after] another [god]: their nesakhim (drink offerings) of blood will I not offer, nor take up their names into my lips.

16:5 YHWH (יהוה) [is] the portion of mine nachalah (inheritance) and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

16:6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant [places]; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

16:7 I will bless YHWH (יהוה), who hath given me counsel: my reins also instruct me in the night seasons.

16:8 I have set YHWH (יהוה) always before me: because [he is] at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

16:9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope.

16:10 For thou wilt not leave my nefesh in sh'ol; neither wilt thou suffer thine set apart One to see corruption.

16:11 Thou wilt shew me the Orach Chayyim (Path of Life): in thy presence [is] fulness of simcha; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures netzach (le-olam-va-edmore).

The Key to understanding Tehillim 16 is found in Acts 2:24-28 where Kefa quotes in 8-11a as referring to the resurrection of Moshiach.

also Psa 56-60

Miktam ( מכתם) 大衛金詩 when the Pelishtim seized him in Gat  The word 'mikhtam' is based on the word 'ketem' – a stain, but a stain or a mark on your heart that should never go away. Hirsch expresses it beautifully: The superscription 'mikhtam' seems to denote a psalm that David has recorded for himself as an everlasting memorial, a tenet to which he would adhere forever."

Right hand:- In the Scripture the right hand speaks of

Power (Psa 89:13)

Safety (Psa 20:6)

Honour (Psa 45:9; 110:1)

Pleasure (Psa 16:11)

Favour (Psa 80:17)

Support (Psa 18:35)

The probably reason why this psalm is recited in the funeral, as we now understand that Moshiach has risen and now sitted at the right hand of YHWH, we as  believer whose love ones who have the Moshiach being call home would then be with Moshiach a better place.

2 Cor 5:6  Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from Adonay

2 Cor 5:7 (For we walk by faith, not by sight:)

2 Cor 5:8 We are confident, I say, and * * willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with Adonay
