David's confidence in God's grace.

A Psalm by David.

23:1 Yahweh is my shepherd:
I shall lack nothing.

23:2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.

23:3 He restores my soul.
He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

23:4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me.
Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

23:5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil.
My cup runs over.

23:6 Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in Yahweh’s house forever.
