The Lord, the Psalmist’s Shepherd.
A Psalm of David.
23 The Lord is my (A)shepherd,
I will (B)not be in need.
2 He lets me lie down in (C)green pastures;
He (D)leads me beside [a](E)quiet waters.
3 He (F)restores my soul;
He (G)guides me in the [b](H)paths of righteousness
For the sake of His name.
4 Even though I (I)walk through the [c]valley of the shadow of death,
I (J)fear no [d]evil, for (K)You are with me;
Your (L)rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
5 You (M)prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You [e]have (N)anointed my head with oil;
My (O)cup overflows.
6 [f]Certainly (P)goodness and [g]faithfulness will follow me all the days of my life,
And my (Q)dwelling will be in the house of the Lord [h]forever.
The King of Glory Entering Zion.
A Psalm of David.
24 The (R)earth is the Lord’s, and [i]all it contains,
The (S)world, and those who live in it.
2 For He has (T)founded it upon the seas
And established it upon the rivers.
3 Who may (U)ascend onto the (V)hill of the Lord?
And who may stand in His holy (W)place?
4 One who has (X)clean hands and a (Y)pure heart,
Who has not (Z)lifted up his soul to deceit
And has not (AA)sworn deceitfully.
5 He will receive a (AB)blessing from the Lord
And [j](AC)righteousness from the God of his salvation.
6 [k]This is the generation of those who (AD)seek Him,
Who seek Your face—even Jacob. Selah
7 (AE)Lift up your heads, you gates,
And be lifted up, you [l]ancient doors,
That the King of (AF)glory may come in!
8 Who is the King of glory?
The Lord (AG)strong and mighty,
The Lord (AH)mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, you gates,
And lift them up, you [m]ancient doors,
That the King of (AI)glory may come in!
10 Who is this King of glory?
The Lord of (AJ)armies,
He is the King of glory. Selah
