1 The Lord is my shepherd; ♦︎
therefore can I lack nothing.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures ♦︎
and leads me beside still waters.
3 He shall refresh my soul ♦︎
and guide me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.
4 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.
5 You spread a table before me
in the presence of those who trouble me; ♦︎
you have anointed my head with oil
and my cup shall be full.
6 Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life, ♦︎
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
1 To you, O Lord, I lift up my soul;
O my God, in you I trust; ♦︎
let me not be put to shame;
let not my enemies triumph over me.
2 Let none who look to you be put to shame, ♦︎
but let the treacherous be shamed and frustrated.
3 Make me to know your ways, O Lord, ♦︎
and teach me your paths.
4 Lead me in your truth and teach me, ♦︎
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you have I hoped all the day long.
5 Remember, Lord, your compassion and love, ♦︎
for they are from everlasting.
6 Remember not the sins of my youth
or my transgressions, ♦︎
but think on me in your goodness, O Lord,
according to your steadfast love.
7 Gracious and upright is the Lord; ♦︎
therefore shall he teach sinners in the way.
8 He will guide the humble in doing right ♦︎
and teach his way to the lowly.
9 All the paths of the Lord are mercy and truth ♦︎
to those who keep his covenant and his testimonies.
10 For your names sake, O Lord, ♦︎
be merciful to my sin, for it is great.
11 Who are those who fear the Lord? ♦︎
Them will he teach in the way that they should choose.
12 Their soul shall dwell at ease ♦︎
and their offspring shall inherit the land.
13 The hidden purpose of the Lord is for those who fear him ♦︎
and he will show them his covenant.
14 My eyes are ever looking to the Lord, ♦︎
for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
15 Turn to me and be gracious to me, ♦︎
for I am alone and brought very low.
16 The sorrows of my heart have increased; ♦︎
O bring me out of my distress.
17 Look upon my adversity and misery ♦︎
and forgive me all my sin.
18 Look upon my enemies, for they are many ♦︎
and they bear a violent hatred against me.
19 O keep my soul and deliver me; ♦︎
let me not be put to shame, for I have put my trust in you.
20 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me, ♦︎
for my hope has been in you.
21 Deliver Israel, O God, ♦︎
out of all his troubles.
