The Lord is our shepherd. We lack nothing.
He lets us rest in grassy meadows; he leads us to restful waters;
he keeps me us alive. He guides us in proper paths for the sake of his good name.
Even when we walk through the darkest valley, We fear no danger because you are with me. Your rod and your staff—they protect us. You set a table for us right in front of our enemies.You bathe our heads in oil; our cups are so full it spills over!
 Yes, goodness and faithful love will pursue us all the days of my life,
 and we will live in the Lord’s house as long as we live.
-Psalm 23 (CEB with corporate language)
