psalm 23 scripture passage from "A Conservative Version" (ACV)


1  Jehovah is my shepherd, I shall not want.


2  He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters. 


3  He restores my soul. He guides me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 


4  Yea, tho I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou are with me, thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me. 


5  Thou prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Thou have anointed my head with oil. My cup runs over. 


6  Surely goodness and loving kindness shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of Jehovah forever.
