20  ‘I have found David my servant; 
   with my holy oil have I anointed him.
21  ‘My hand shall hold him fast 
   and my arm shall strengthen him.
22  ‘No enemy shall deceive him, 
   nor any wicked person afflict him.
23  ‘I will strike down his foes before his face 
   and beat down those that hate him.
24  ‘My truth also and my steadfast love shall be with him, 
   and in my name shall his head be exalted.
25  ‘I will set his dominion upon the sea 
   and his right hand upon the rivers.
26  ‘He shall call to me, “You are my Father, 
   my God, and the rock of my salvation;”
27  ‘And I will make him my firstborn, 
   the most high above the kings of the earth.
28  ‘The love I have pledged to him will I keep for ever, 
   and my covenant will stand fast with him.
29  ‘His seed also will I make to endure for ever 
   and his throne as the days of heaven.
30  ‘But if his children forsake my law 
   and cease to walk in my judgements,
31  ‘If they break my statutes 
   and do not keep my commandments,
32  ‘I will punish their offences with a rod 
   and their sin with scourges.
33  ‘But I will not take from him my steadfast love 
   nor suffer my truth to fail.
34  ‘My covenant will I not break 
   nor alter what has gone out of my lips.
35  ‘Once for all have I sworn by my holiness 
   that I will not prove false to David.
36  ‘His seed shall endure for ever 
   and his throne as the sun before me;
37  ‘It shall stand fast for ever as the moon, 
   the enduring witness in the heavens.’

Psalm 23

The Divine Shepherd

A Psalm of David.
1 The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
2   He makes me lie down in green pastures;
he leads me beside still waters;*
3   he restores my soul.*
He leads me in right paths*
   for his name’s sake.


4 Even though I walk through the darkest valley,*
   I fear no evil;
for you are with me;
   your rod and your staff—
   they comfort me.


5 You prepare a table before me
   in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
   my cup overflows.
6 Surely* goodness and mercy* shall follow me
   all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
   my whole life long.*
