Acts 2:24-26 The Passion Translation (TPT)

24 God destroyed the cords of death[a] and raised him up, because it was impossible for death’s power to hold him prisoner. 25 This is the very thing David prophesied about him:[b]

‘I continually see the Lord[c] in front of me.
    He’s at my right hand, and I am never shaken.[d]
26 No wonder my heart is glad and my glory celebrates![e]
    My mouth is filled with his praises,
    and I have hope that my body will live[f]
