Psalm 23

Bible passage (Revised Standard Version)

A Psalm of David.

23The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want;

2he makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters;

3he restores my soul.

He leads me in paths of righteousness

for his name’s sake.

4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

I fear no evil;

for thou art with me;

thy rod and thy staff,

they comfort me.

5Thou preparest a table before me

in the presence of my enemies;

thou anointest my head with oil,

my cup overflows.

6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

all the days of my life;

and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord

for ever.
