Psalm 23- Reconstructionist Wording

book of psalms

A Psalm of David

The Eternal is my shepherd; I shall never be in need.
Amid the choices grasses does God set me down.
God leads me by the calmest waters,
and restores my soul.
God takes me along paths of righteousness,
in keeping with the honor of God’s name.
Even should I wander I a valley of the darkest shadows,
I will fear no evil,
You are with me, God. Your power and support
are there to comfort me.
You set in front of me a table I
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup is overflowing.
Surely, good and loving-kindness will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I shall come to dwell inside the house
of The Eternal for a length of days.
