Psalm 23

New English Translation

   A psalm of David.
   1 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.

King James Version

   A Psalm of David.
   1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
   2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
   3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
   4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
   5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
   6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
