Book I
Jehovah the Psalmist’s Shepherd
A Psalm of David.
[1]  JEHOVAH is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
[2]  He maketh me to lie down in green pastures;
He leadeth me beside still 1 waters.
[3]  He restoreth my soul:
He guideth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
[4]  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the 2 shadow of death,
I will fear no evil; for thou art with me;
Thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me.
[5]  Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
Thou hast anointed my head with oil;
My cup runneth over.
[6]  Surely 3 goodness and lovingkindness shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I shall dwell in the house of Jehovah for 4 ever.
