A psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd: I am never in need.
2 He lays me down in green pastures.
He gently leads me to waters of rest,
3 he refreshes my life.
He guides me along paths that are straight,
4 And when my way lies through a valley of gloom,
I fear no evil, for you are with me.
Your rod and your staff comfort me.
5 You spread a table for me
in face of my foes;
with oil you anoint my head,
and my cup runs over.
6 Surely goodness and love will pursue me —
all the days of my life.
In the house of the Lord I will live
through the length of the days.
