“The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.”
Psalm 23:1 ESV
–David, the shepherd boy who became a king.
One of the most famous psalms written by king David is the 23rd Psalm. David compares the care and provision of the Lord to that of a good shepherd. In his youth, David tended his father’s sheep before killing the giant warrior Goliath.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
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.
5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
Psalm 23 ESV
