A psalm of David.
1 Since the Lord is my shepherd, I have everything I need.
2 He gives me rest in green fields. He leads me towards quietly flowing streams.
3 He revives me. He guides me along the right paths because that's the kind of person he is.
4 Even when I walk through the valley dark as death, I'm not afraid of any evil, because you are right there with me; your rod and your staff protect me.
5 You prepare a banquet for me before my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with olive oil. My cup is so full it overflows!
6 I'm absolutely certain that your goodness and trustworthy love will be with me all through my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
