Psalm 23:1–6

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want;

he makes me lie down in green pastures.

He leads me beside still waters;s

he restores my soul.t

He leads me in paths of righteousnessu

for his name’s sake.

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

I fear no evil;

for thou art with me;

thy rod and thy staff,

they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me

in the presence of my enemies;

thou anointest my head with oil,

my cup overflows.

Surelyw goodness and mercyx shall follow me

all the days of my life;

and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord

for ever.y
