Psalm 23

The Power of The Shepherd

He is the active party:

  • makes
  • restores
  • leads
  • guides
  • secures
  • comforts
  • prepares
  • feeds
  • anoints

I am passive one:

  • followed by goodness and mercy
  • dwell in God's house

Psalm 23

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
    He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
    he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
    for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
    through the valley of the shadow of death,[a]
I will fear no evil,
    for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
    in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
    my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord
    forever.   AMEN
