Psalm 23 King James Holy Bible
Psalm 23 is one of the most dearly loved, soul-comforting passages of Scripture. The inspiring text is often quoted at funeral services and memorial events. The passage begins with this familiar reassurance: "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.
Confidence in God's grace and care. With joy he reflects that he has a shepherd, and that shepherd is Jehovah. A flock of sheep, gentle and harmless, feeding in verdant pastures, under the care of a skilful, watchful, and tender shepherd, forms an emblem of believers brought back to the Shepherd of their souls. The greatest abundance is but a dry pasture to a wicked man, who relishes in it only what pleases the senses; but to a godly man, who by faith tastes the goodness of God in all his enjoyments, though he has but little of the world, it is a green pasture. The Lord gives quiet and contentment in the mind, whatever the lot is. Are we blessed with the green pastures of the ordinances, let us not think it enough to pass through them, but let us abide in them.

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 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. God will deliver the needy who cry out and those who are afflicted with no one to help. You will guide me with Your counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. I will abide in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

The writer describes God as his shepherd, in the role of protector and provider. The psalm is read, recited and sung by Jews and Christians.
