"The Lord is my shepard; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in the green pastures; He leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil ; for thou art with me; Thy rod and thy staff comfort me. Thou prepared a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever." - Psalms 23
