The Lord is my Shepard. I shall not want;
He maketh me lie down in green pastures:
He leadth me beside the still waters.
He storeth my soul: he leadth 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.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever
