    Definitions for Psalms 104:21

    Meat - Food.

    Clarke's Commentary on Psalms 104:21

    The young lions roar after their prey - It is said of the lion, that his roaring is so terrible as to astonish and quite unnerve the beast which he pursues; so that, though fleeter than himself, it falls down and becomes an easy prey.

    Barnes' Notes on Psalms 104:21

    The young lions roar after their prey - This is a continuation of the description in the previous verse. At night the beasts which had been hidden in the daytime crawl forth and seek their food. The lion is particularly specified as one of the beasts that in a general survey would attract attention. The psalmist hears his "roar" as he goes forth in the forest in pursuit of his prey.

    And seek their meat from God - Their food. That is, God bestows it on them, and they act as if they sought it at his hand. They seek it where he has placed it; they are dependent on him for it. It is a beautiful idea that even the brute creation act as if they called on God, and sought the supply of their needs at his hands.

    Wesley's Notes on Psalms 104:21

    104:21 Roar - They roar when they come within sight of their prey. Seek - Their roaring is a kind of natural prayer to God, for relief.
