This prophecy about the promised Messiah and His resurrection from the grave. It was foretold and written by David in the book of Psalms. God made this prophetic statement through David and described how the physical body of Christ "would not" see corruption as David's physical body would in death to the physical. In this prophecy the miracle of a Savior was foretold. At the time of death David's body was placed in the sepulchre (the grave) and still remains there. At the time of death Christ's body was placed in a tomb...but was miraculously "changed" or "glorified" in the miracle of a resurrection. Christ's body did not see corruption (after death) nor does Christ's body remain in a tomb at present.
Psalm 16:10...For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
David's prophetic utterance in Psalms 16:10 about, "Leaving the soul in Hell"...is a Biblical description of the "unseen world" or the "spiritual abode of the dead". Souls of just and unjust men will go to the unseen world (the abode of the dead) when their physical body is laid in the grave. In the Old Testament records the unseen world and abode of the dead was known as Abraham's Bosom. Abraham's bosom was defined by Christ in Luke 16 - as place of comfort; and a place of torment. Lazurus and the rich man both went to Abraham's Bosom and could see each other but could not cross the great gulf between both places. Paradise (which is Heaven) and Hades (which is Hell) are both places inside of Abraham's Bosom.
"Psalm 16:10... concerning the resurrection of Christ was preached by the Apostle Peter in Acts 2, and also by the Apostle Paul in Acts 13. Both Apostles pointed the fact that Christ "rose" from the grave in a bodily resurrection. The body of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was resurrected and did not experience decay or corruption like David's body experienced."
The miracle of the death, burial, and resurrection of the the Holy One (Christ) fulfilled David's prophecy of Psalm 16:9-11.
Psalm 16:9-11...Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth: my flesh also shall rest in hope. For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
Here are three other prophecies about the resurrection of Israel's promised Messiah. All prophecies of a resurrected Lord were foretold and recorded by King David in the book of Psalms.

Psalm 110:1...The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.
Psalm 132: 11...The LORD hath sworn in truth unto David; he will not turn from it; Of the fruit of thy body will I set upon thy throne.
