1The Lord is my shepherd. I will always have everything I need. 2He lets me lie down in green pastures. He leads me by calm pools of water. 3He gives new strength to my soul for the good of his name. He leads me on paths of goodness, to show he is truly good. 4Even if I walk through a valley as dark as the grave, I will not be afraid of any danger. Why? Because you are with me, Lord. Your rod and staff comfort me. 5Lord, you prepared my table in front of my enemies. You poured oil on my head. My cup is full and spilling over. 6Goodness and mercy will be with me the rest of my life. And I will sit in the Lord’s temple for a long, long time.
