Psalm 23

A Psalm of David

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He makes me lie down in green pastures;

he leads me beside still waters;

He leads me in right paths for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I fear no evil;

for you are with me; your rod and staff – they comfort me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.

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

and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord my whole life long.
