Lord: “The Lord Is My Shepherd,” Psalm 23

In Psalm 23, our Lord comforts me and reminds me that everything is going to be all right, as long as I do my best to follow His will..


The Lord is my Shepherd.                          

    I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down

    in green pastures.

He leadeth me beside still waters.

He restoreth my soul.

He leadeth me in the paths
of righteousness, 
for his name’s sake.      

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadowanimals - rabbit bunny on haunches nice portrait of death, I will fear no evil, for Thou art with me.

Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.

Thou prepares a table before me, in the presence of my enemies. waterfalls -havasufalls grand canyon

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 shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

                         ~Psalm 23


The Lord Is My Shepherd portrays our Lord as a good shepherd, feeding and leading his flock.  The “rod and staff” are   implements of a shepherd.  A  shepherd must know each sheep by name. Thus when psalm 23 portrays the Lord as a shepherd, God is not only a protector.  In addition, He is our caretaker.  Our Lord, as caretaker, leadsjesus-holding-lamb His sheep to green pastures  and still waters, because he knows that each of his sheep must be personally led to be fed.  Thus, without their Shepherd, the sheep, known for stupidity, would die, either from predation or starvation.”

       (From: Wikipedia, Psalm 23)
