Completely Satisfied

Psalm 16:11

11 You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore (NKJV).

Ellicott’s Commentary for English Readers

…The fair heritage, the serene happiness, the enduring pleasure always to be found at God’s right hand, are all different modes of expressing the same sense of complete satisfaction and peace given by a deep religious trust touched, ever so faintly, by a ray of a larger hope beginning to triumph over death itself.

Barnes’ Notes on the Bible

The highest form of life is that which is found in heaven, at the right hand of God; and the connection shows it was that on which the eye of the psalmist was fixed.

Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

The truth may be (as will be seen more clearly in Psalms 17) that the antithesis is not between life here and life hereafter, but between life with and life without God; and for the moment, in the overpowering sense of the blessedness of fellowship with God, death fades entirely from the Psalmist’s view.
