Psalm 23

h3. The LORD Is My Shepherd

h4. A Psalm of David.

^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 righteousness[2]
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^ Surely[4] goodness and mercy[5] shall follow me
all the days of my life,

and I shall dwell[6] in the house of the LORD
