The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
ã€€He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
ã€€He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
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. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.ã€€
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.
