Psalm 23 New International Version (NIV)

A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd,(A) I lack nothing.(B) 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,(C) 3 he refreshes my soul.(D) He guides me(E) along the right paths(F) for his name’s sake.(G) 4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,[a](H) I will fear no evil,(I) for you are with me;(J) your rod and your staff, they comfort me. 5 You prepare a table(K) before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil;(L) my cup(M) overflows. 6 Surely your goodness and love(N) will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
