Psalm 22 (A Psalm by David)
1 The Lord is my Shepherd, and will deny me nothing.
2 He settles me in green pasturage,
and raises me on refreshing water.
3 He converts my soul,
and guides me on the right tracks
for His Name's sake.
4 For even though I go through the shadow of death,
I will fear no evils, for Thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff comfort me.
5 Thou hast prepared a table before me
in the face of those who trouble me.
6 Thou hast anointed my head with oil.
And Thy chalice which inebriates me, how glorious it is!
7 And Thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life.
8 And I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
throughout the length of my days.
