The 23rd Psalm


“The Lord is my shepherd”


A psalm of David


The Lord is my shepherd;  I shall not want. 

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures. 

He leadeth me beside the still waters. 

He restoreth my soul.

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.


Yea, though I walk through the valley of  the shadow of death,

I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.

Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.


Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies.

Thou anointest my head with oil.

My cup runneth over.

Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life,

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
