The Lord Is My Shepherd
A Psalm of David.1 The Lord is my a shepherd; I shall not b want.
2He makes me lie down in green c pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. ▼
▼Hebrew beside waters of rest
3He e restores my soul.
He f leads me in g paths of righteousness ▼
▼Or in right paths
for his i name’s sake.
4 Even though I j walk through the valley of k the shadow of death, ▼
▼Or the valley of deep darkness
I will m fear no evil,
for n you are with me;
your o rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
5 You p prepare a table before me
in q the presence of my enemies;
you r anoint my head with oil;
my s cup overflows.
▼Or Onlygoodness and mercy ▼
▼Or steadfast loveshall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall v dwell ▼
▼Or shall return to dwellin the house of the Lord
x forever. ▼
▼Hebrew for length of days
