23:1 A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd,

I lack nothing.

2 He takes me to lush pastures,

he leads me to refreshing water.

3 He restores my strength.

He leads me down the right paths

for the sake of his reputation.

4 Even when I must walk through the darkest valley,

I fear no danger,

for you are with me;

your rod and your staff reassure me.

5 You prepare a feast before me

in plain sight of my enemies.

You refresh my head with oil;

my cup is completely full.

6 Surely your goodness and faithfulness will pursue me all my days,

and I will live in the Lord’s house for the rest of my life.
