PSALM 23  A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
2  He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
3  He refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
    for His name’s sake.
4 Even though I walk
    through the darkest valley,
   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 Surely Your goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
    and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
