The Psalms

Psalm 23

David's confidence in God's grace, 1-6.

1 [A Psalm of David.] The LORD is my shepherd. I shall lack nothing.

2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters.

3 He restores my soul. He leads me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shades of death, 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 runs over.

6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
