Even though I (A)walk through the valley of (B)the shadow of death,[a]
    I will (C)fear no evil,
for (D)you are with me;
    your (E)rod and your staff,
    they comfort me.

You (F)prepare a table before me
    in (G)the presence of my enemies;
you (H)anoint my head with oil;
    my (I)cup overflows.
Surely[b] goodness and mercy[c] shall follow me
    all the days of my life,
and I shall (J)dwell[d] in the house of the Lord
    (K)forever.[e]
