Psalms 23



Verse 1
"A Psalm of David." The LORD [is] my shepherd; a I shall not want.

(a) He has care over me and ministers all things to me.

Verse 3
He b restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the c paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

(b) He comforts or refreshes me.

(c) Plain or straight ways.

Verse 4
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the d shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

(d) Though he was in danger of death, as the sheep that wanders in the dark valley without his shepherd.

Verse 5
Thou preparest a e table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou f anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

(e) Even though his enemies sought to destroy him, yet God delivers him, and deals most liberally with him in spite of them.

(f) As was the manner of great feasts.

Verse 6
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the g house of the LORD for ever.

(g) He does not set his happiness in the pleasures of this world, but in the fear and service of God.
