|THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall
He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads
me beside the still and restful waters.
He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths
of righteousness [uprightness and right standing with Him--not for my earning
it, but] for His name's sake.
Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear or dread no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to
protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You
anoint my head with [a]oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me
all the days of my life, and through the length of my days the house of
the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place.
