Psalm 23 (1977)
¹ The Lord is my shepherd:
therefore can I lack nothing.
² He will make me lie down in green pastures:
and lead me beside still waters.
³ He will refresh my soul:
and guide me in right pathways for his name's 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 comfort me.
⁵ You spread a table before me
in the face of those who trouble me:
you have anointed my head with oil
and my cup will be full.
⁶ Surely your goodness and loving– kindness
will follow me all the days of my life:
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 84:1–7.12-13 (1995 Inclusive Language Version)
1How lovely is your dwelling–place:
O Lord God of hosts!
2 My soul has a desire and longing
to enter the courts of the Lord:
my heart and my flesh rejoice in the living God.
3 The sparrow has found her a home,
and the swallow a nest where she may lay her young:
even your altar, O Lord of hosts, my King and my God.
4 Blessed are those who dwell in your house:
they will always be praising you.
5 Blessed are those whose strength is in you:
in whose heart are the highways to Zion;
6 Who, going through the valley of dryness,
find there a spring from which to drink:
till the autumn rain shall clothe it with blessings.
7 They go from strength to strength:
they appear, every one of them,
before the God of gods in Zion.
12 For the Lord God is a light and a shield,
the Lord gives favour and honour:
and no good thing will he withhold
from those who walk in innocence.
13 O Lord God of hosts:
blessed are those who put their trust in you.
