I noticed that Psalms 51 in all of my versions had 19 verses.

In the BDB(BHS with Westminster Hebrew Morphology) there are 22 verses.

Then I noticed that the chapter in the BDB begins with verse 2. Is this accurate?
I want to live my life so that every morning
when I wake up Satan says, Oh, no! Shes awake!

BDB is a dictionary, so I think you are referring to the BHS-W4. If you make this the search text you will see all the verses. This is part of the way that Accordance handles verse discrepancies. In this Psalm the title (verse 0 in English) covers two verses in Hebrew. Whenever you are in doubt, check the entire context for that version. The shortcut is to select a verse in that version and click the Context button on the resource palette.
