David's thirst for God.
Psalms 63:1 A psalm of David while he was in the desert of Edom. O God, my God, to thee do I watch at break of day. For thee my soul hath thirsted; for thee my flesh, O how many ways! Psalms 63:2 In a desert land, and where there is no way, and no water: so in the sanctuary have I come before thee, to see thy power and thy glory. Psalms 63:3 For thy mercy is better than lives: thee my lips will praise.
His manner of blessing God.
Psalms 63:4 Thus will I bless thee all my life long: and in thy name I will lift up my hands. Psalms 63:5 Let my soul be filled as with marrow and fatness: and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips. Psalms 63:6 If I have remembered thee upon my bed, I will meditate on thee in the morning: Psalms 63:7 Because thou hast been my helper. And I will rejoice under the covert of thy wings: Psalms 63:8 My soul hath stuck close to thee: thy right hand hath received me.
His confidence of his enemies' destruction, and his own safety.
Psalms 63:9 But they have sought my soul in vain, they shall go into the lower parts of the earth: Psalms 63:10 They shall be delivered into the hands of the sword, they shall be the portions of foxes. Psalms 63:11 But the king shall rejoice in God, all they shall be praised that swear by him: because the mouth is stopped of them that speak wicked things.
