You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Psalmus 22 (23)

Language: Latin after the Hebrew (עברית)

1 [Psalmus David.] 
 Dominus regit me, et nihil mihi deerit:
2 in loco pascuæ, ibi me collocavit.
 Super aquam refectionis educavit me;
3 animam meam convertit.
 Deduxit me super semitas justitiæ
 propter nomen suum.
4 Nam etsi ambulavero in medio umbræ mortis,
 non timebo mala, quoniam tu mecum es.
 Virga tua, et baculus tuus,
 ipsa me consolata sunt.
5 Parasti in conspectu meo mensam
 adversus eos qui tribulant me;
 impinguasti in oleo caput meum:
 et calix meus inebrians, quam præclarus est!
6 Et misericordia tua subsequetur me
 omnibus diebus vitæ meæ;
 et ut inhabitem in domo Domini
 in longitudinem dierum.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not...

Language: English after the Latin

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures:
he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me
in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me;
thy rod and [thy]1 staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me
in the presence of [mine]2 enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil;
my cup runneth 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.
