Derek Kidner: Depth and strength underlie the simplicity of this psalm. Its peace is not escape; its contentment is not complacency; there is readiness to face deep darkness and imminent attack, and the climax reveals a love which homes towards no material goal but to the LORD Himself.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
