PSALM XXIII. Chapter Overview

David extolls the goodness of God as his shepherd, and expresses his confidence in him, verse 1-6.
A psalm of David.

Verse 2
Lie down - To repose myself at noon, as the manner was in those hot countries. Green - Where there is both delight and plenty of provisions.

Verse 3
Restoreth - Heb. He bringeth it back; from its errors and wandering. For - Not for any worth in me, but for the glory of his justice, and faithfulness, and goodness.

Verse 4
Thy rod and thy staff - Two words denoting the same thing, and both designing God's pastoral care over him.

Verse 5
A table - Thou furnishest me with plenty of provisions and comforts. Oil - With aromatic ointments, which were then used at great feasts; thy comforts delight my soul. Runneth over - Thou hast given me a plentiful portions, signified by the cup, given to the guests by the master of the feast.
