PSALM 23

Psalms, 23: 1-6, a psalm of David

NIV – New International Version

1   The LORD is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

2   He makes me lie down in green pastures,

     he leads me beside quiet waters,

3   he refreshes my soul.

     He guides me along the right paths

for his name’s sake.

4   Even though I walk

through the valley of the shadow of death,[a]

      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 your goodness and love will follow me

all the days of my life,

     and I will dwell in the house of the LORD

forever.
