Bible Reading / Book By Book: 1 Kings to Psalms  

Day 85 / Psalms 23

This is one of the most famous chapters in the entire Bible. It speaks of God’s care for us being like how a shepherd cares for his sheep. You might not like viewing yourself as a weak and unintelligent sheep, but it is great that God cares for us in this way!

Psalm 23  (NASB)

The Lord, the Psalmist’s Shepherd

23 The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters.
3 He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I 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 have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
