The Good Shepherd
A psalm of David.
1The Lord is my shepherd;
I have what I need.
2He lets me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside quiet waters.
3He renews my life;
he leads me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
4Even when I go through the darkest valley,
I fear no danger,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff — they comfort me.
5You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6Only goodness and faithful love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
as long as I live.
