Are you in need of calming, then Praise Him!

O God, You are my God;                                         

Early will I seek You;

My soul thirsts for You;

My flesh longs for You

In a dry and thirsty land

Where there is no water.

So I have looked for You in the


To see Your power and Your glory.

Because Your lovingkindness is better

than life,

My lips shall praise You.

    Psalm 63 N.K.J.V.

     Praise, shabachStrong’s # 7623: To commend, praise; to adore; to glory in something; to still, quiet, or pacify someone. Shabach goes in two directions, “praising” and “calming.” The verb occurs 11 times in OT, 8 of these having to do with speaking words of praise. The other 3 references speak either about calming the tumultuous sea (Psalm 65:7; 89:9) or about hushing up things within one’s heart (Proverbs 29:11). There appears to be a connection between “praising with words” and “soothing with words,” as any aggrieved person offered words of honor can testify.
