The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth be beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his nameâ€(TM)s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; they rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine 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 for ever. Psalms 23
