The Lord the Shepherd
A psalm of David.
1The Lord is my shepherd;
I have everything I need.
2He lets me rest in green pastures.
He leads me to calm water.
3He gives me new strength.
He leads me on paths that are right
for the good of his name.
4Even if I walk through a very dark valley,
I will not be afraid,
because you are with me.
Your rod and your shepherd’s staff comfort me.
5You prepare a meal for me
in front of my enemies.
You pour oil of blessing on my head;
you fill my cup to overflowing.
6Surely your goodness and love will be with me
all my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
