1The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.2He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,3he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.4Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, 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.6Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
King James Version
1A Psalm of David. The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name' sake.4Yea, 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.5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
New International Reader’s Version
A psalm of David.
1The LORD is my shepherd. He gives me everything I need.2He lets me lie down in fields of green grass. He leads me beside quiet waters.3He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths for the honour of his name.4Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid. You are with me. Your shepherd’s rod and staff comfort me.5You prepare a feast for me right in front of my enemies. You pour oil on my head. My cup runs over.6I am sure that your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life. And I will live in the house of the LORD for ever.
