Chapter 63: David “Thirsts” for God.
A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.
David tells us that his “…soul thirsteth for thee [God], my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;” (Psalms 63:1)
David praises god, even in his hardest times. He tells us that those who seek to destroy us will be dealt with accordingly if we praise God.
Chapter 64: David Prays for Safety
To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
David prays for his safety and exclaims that the evil men “Who whet their tongue like a sword, and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words.” (Psalms 63:3). David is of course speaking of the evil men who can cause much damage with the words that leave their mouth as they can by any other means.
But we learn that those evil men, with their bitter words will make “…their own tongue to fall upon themselves…” (Psalms 63:8) In other words, they will be caught in their lies and because of this they will fall and those who do not declare the work of the Lord and fear Him shall perish.
