Psalm 23

I have no brilliant analysis. It is just beautiful to contemplate.


1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 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.

Thank you for bringing back a very special and personal memory to my heart in relation to this Psalm and a family memory who died a few years ago.

Barb, you're welcome. It's a beautiful scripture, isn't it? "He restoreth my soul"

as a little girl I had to memorize this passage of scripture. I loved it then and I still do. I enjoy it in music as well.

"He restoreth my soul," "What more can he say," "He lives!" Have you ever noticed how often the most meaningful scripture contains an economy of words?
