ruleth me: and I shall want nothing.
He hath set me in a place of pasture.
He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment:
He hath converted my soul.
He hath led me on the paths of justice,
for His Own name's sake.
For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death,I will
fear no evils, for Thou art with me.
Thy rod and Thy staff, they have comforted me.
Thou hast prepared a table before me
against them that afflict me.
Thou hast anointed my head with oil;
and my chalice

And Thy mercy will
follow me all the days of my life.
And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
unto length of days.
He shall feed His flock like a shepherd:
He shall gather together the lambs with His arm,
and shall take them up to His bosom,
and He Himself shall carry them that are with young.
