Psalm 23: 23 The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the stills waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of reighteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
