Psalm 23

The Good Shepherd

A Davidic psalm.

The Lord is my shepherd; g

there is nothing I lack. h

He lets me lie down in green pastures; i

He leads me beside quiet waters. j

He renews my life;

He leads me along the right paths k

for His name’s sake. l

Even when I go through the darkest valley, m

I fear no danger,

for You are with me; n

Your rod and Your staff o—they comfort me. p

You prepare a table before me

in the presence of my enemies;

You anoint my head with oil; q

my cup overflows. r

Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me

all the days of my life, s

and I will dwell in t the house of the Lord

as long as I live. u v
