Psalm 23

Language: Hebrew (עברית)

א   [מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד:]1
  יְהוָה רֹעִי, לֹא אֶחְסָר.
ב   בִּנְאוֹת דֶּשֶׁא, יַרְבִּיצֵנִי;
   עַל-מֵי מְנֻחוֹת יְנַהֲלֵנִי.
ג   נַפְשִׁי יְשׁוֹבֵב;
   יַנְחֵנִי בְמַעְגְּלֵי-צֶדֶק, לְמַעַן שְׁמוֹ.
ד   גַּם כִּי-אֵלֵךְ בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת, לֹא-אִירָא רָע-- כִּי-אַתָּה עִמָּדִי;
   שִׁבְטְךָ וּמִשְׁעַנְתֶּךָ, הֵמָּה יְנַחֲמֻנִי.
ה   תַּעֲרֹךְ לְפָנַי, שֻׁלְחָן-- נֶגֶד צֹרְרָי;
   דִּשַּׁנְתָּ בַשֶּׁמֶן רֹאשִׁי, כּוֹסִי רְוָיָה.
ו   אַךְ, טוֹב וָחֶסֶד יִרְדְּפוּנִי-- כָּל-יְמֵי חַיָּי;
   וְשַׁבְתִּי בְּבֵית-יְהוָה, לְאֹרֶךְ יָמִים.

Psaume 23

Language: French (Français) after the Hebrew (עברית)

1 [Cantique de David.]
  L'Eternel est mon berger : je ne manquerai de rien.
2 Il me fait reposer dans de verts pâturages, 
  Il me dirige près des eaux paisibles.
3 Il restaure mon âme, 
  Il me conduit dans les sentiers de la justice,
  À cause de son nom.
4 Quand je marche dans la vallée de l'ombre de la mort,
  Je ne crains aucun mal, car tu es avec moi :
  Ta houlette et ton bâton me rassurent.
5 Tu dresses devant moi une table,
  En face de mes adversaires;
  Tu oins d'huile ma tête,
  Et ma coupe déborde.
6 Oui, le bonheur et la grâce m'accompagneront 
  Tous les jours de ma vie,
  Et j'habiterai dans la maison de l'Eternel
  Jusqu'à la fin de mes jours.
