Psalm 23
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: 
he leadeth me beside the still waters.

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.

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.
