What does Acts 2:31 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Acts 2:31

He seeing this before
Or by a spirit of prophecy foreseeing it, that according to God's promise and oath, the Messiah would be raised up, and spring from his seed; and also by the same Spirit foresaw that he would suffer and die, and be laid in the grave, the pit of corruption:

spake of the resurrection of Christ;
from the dead, to the sense of the following words, in ( Psalms 16:10 ) .

that his soul was not left in hell:
neither his separate soul in Hades, nor his body in the grave;

neither his flesh did see corruption;
or his body, or his "carcass", as the Syriac version renders it, did not lie so long in the grave as to rot and putrefy.
