Pitch a Tent and Dwell in Hope

Acts 2:25-28 Amplified Bible, Classic Edition (AMPC)
25 For David says in regard to Him, I saw the Lord constantly before me, for He is at my right hand that I may not be shaken or overthrown or cast down [from my secure and happy state].
26 Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue exulted exceedingly; moreover, my flesh also will dwell in hope [will encamp, pitch its tent, and dwell in hope in anticipation of the resurrection].
27 For You will not abandon my soul, leaving it helpless in Hades (the state of departed spirits), nor let Your Holy One know decay or see destruction [of the body after death].
28 You have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with and in Your presence.

From NetBible Acts 2:26
NASB … Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will live in hope
NKJV … Therefore my heart rejoiced, and my tongue was glad; Moreover my flesh also will rest in hope.
