The Lord Is My Shepherd
A Psalm of David.
23:1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.1
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness2
for his name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,3
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely4 goodness and mercy5 shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell6 in the house of the LORD
Hebrew beside waters of rest
Or in right paths
Or the valley of deep darkness
Or steadfast love
Or shall return to dwell
Hebrew for length of days
