Today's bible teaching: The LORD is my shepherd,there is nothing I lack.


Psalms, Chapter 23

1A psalm of David.


The LORD is my shepherd;*

there is nothing I lack.a

2In green pastures he makes me lie down;

to still waters he leads me;

3bhe restores my soul.

He guides me along right paths*

for the sake of his name.

4Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,c

I will fear no evil, for you are with me;

your rod and your staff comfort me.


5*You set a table before me

in front of my enemies;*

You anoint my head with oil;*d

my cup overflows.e

6Indeed, goodness and mercy* will pursue me

all the days of my life;

I will dwell in the house of the LORDf

for endless days.

* [Psalm 23] God's loving care for the psalmist is portrayed under the figures of a shepherd for the flock (Ps 23:14) and a host's generosity toward a guest (Ps 23:56). The imagery of both sections is drawn from traditions of the exodus (Is 40:1149:10Jer 31:10).
