psalm 23 in hebrew





Adonai ro-i, lo ehsar.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

Bin'ot deshe yarbitseini,

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures,

Al mei m'nuhot y'nahaleini,

He leadeth me beside the still waters,

Naf'shi y'shovev,

He restoreth my soul,

Yan'heini b'ma'aglei tsedek,

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness,

L'ma'an sh'mo.

For His name's sake.

Gam ki eilech

Yea, though I walk

B'gei tsalmavet,

Through the valley of the shadow of death,

Lo ira ra,

I will fear no evil,

Ki Atah imadi.

For Thou art with me.

Shiv't'cha umishan'techa

Thy rod and Thy staff

Hemah y'nahamuni.

They comfort me.

Ta'aroch l'fanai shulchan

Thou preparest a table before me

Neged tsor'rai

In the presence of mine enemies,

Dishanta vashemen roshi

Thou anointest my head with oil,

Cosi r'vayah.

My cup runneth over.

Ach tov vahesed

Surely goodness and mercy

Yird'funi kol y'mei hayai

Shall follow me all the days of my life,

V'shav'ti b'veit Adonai

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord

L'orech yamim.
