Psalms 23


The LORD Tends Me

A psalm to David.

1The  lord tends me, and not one thing lacks for me. 2In the place of tender shoots, there he encamped me. At the water of rest, he nourished me. 3 [2my life 1He returned]; he guided me upon roads of righteousness because of his name. 4For if even I should go in the midst of the shadow of death, I shall not be afraid of evils, for you [2with 3me 1are]. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5You prepared before me a table, right opposite the ones afflicting me. You anointed [2with 3oil 1my head], and your cup is intoxicating me as most excellent. 6And your mercy pursues me all the days of my life; and my dwelling is in the house of the  lord for duration of days.
