Psalm 23

A psalm of David.
1The Lord is my shepherd. He gives me everything I need.
2He lets me lie down in fields of green grass.
He leads me beside quiet waters.
3He gives me new strength.
He guides me in the right paths
for the honor of his name.
4Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid.
You are with me.
Your shepherd’s rod and staff
comfort me.

5You prepare a feast for me
right in front of my enemies.
You pour oil on my head.
My cup runs over.
6I am sure that your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life.
And I will live in the house of the Lord
