“The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death 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 runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life/ and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.” –Psalm 23
