The LORD, the Psalmist's Shepherd.
A Psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd, R625
I shall F214 not R626 want.
2 He makes me lie down in green R627 pastures;
He leads R628 me beside quiet R629 F215 waters.
3 He restores R630 my soul;
He guides R631 me in the paths R632 F216 of righteousness
For His name's sake.
4 Even though I walk R633 through the valley F217 of the shadow of death,
I fear R634 no evil, F218 for You R635 are with me;
Your rod R636 and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You prepare R637 a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You have F219 anointed R638 my head with oil;
My cup R639 overflows.
6 Surely F220 goodness R640 and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell R641 F221 in the house of the LORD forever. F222
