and given her peace.

“1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. 

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside quiet

3 He restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 

4 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. 

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 love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the

house of the LORD forever.”
