The Lord is my shepherd
Language: English  after the Hebrew (עברית) 
The Lord is my shepherd: therefore can I lack nothing.
He shall feed me in a green pasture: 
and lead me forth beside the waters of comfort.
He shall convert my soul: and bring me forth 
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 staff comfort me.
Thou shalt prepare a table for me against them that trouble me: 
thou hast anointed my head with oil, and my cup shall be full.
But thy loving-kindness and mercy shall follow me 
all the days of my life: 
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
