Psalm 23

The LORD is my shepherd;

John:10.11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.

I shall not want.

Romans 8.32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

Leviticus 26:6 And I will give peace in the land, and ye shall lie down, and none shall make you afraid

He restoreth my soul:

Jerimiah 30:17  For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds, saith the LORD;

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Philippians 3:9  And be found in him, not having mine own righteousness, which is of the law, but that which is through the faith of Christ, the righteousness which is of God by faith:

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:

Luke 21: 17-19  17And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.18But there shall not an hair of your head perish.19In your patience possess ye your souls. John 14: 27Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

for thou art with me;

Hebrews 13:5-6 5Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.  6So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

John 14: 16-18  16And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;17Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.

 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:

1 Corinthians 15:25-26  25For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.

thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Ephesians 3: 20-21  20Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, 21Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:

2 Chronicles 16:9 9For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him.

John 14: 2 In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.   Amen.


  1. Dear Leon, thank you once more for dropping by my blog. May I just ask you to be so kind as to give me permission to translate this article of yours? Psalm 23 is my mother’s favorite psalm, and I would like to translate this one for her as a kind of a gift. She has just got a computer and has just started to use the internet, but the very first thing she did was to check out my blog… I would like to surprise her with this, and I’m sure, many other Hungarian people would also benefit from this special collection of biblical verses centered around this most sublime psalm.
    And would please let me translate some other articles of yours, too, in the future?

    Thank you in advance,

    God bless you,

    Hajnalka (“wordwatcherdawn”:-)

    • Hi Hajnalka,

      I am so happy that you find my articles helpful. I could not be happier to hear you would like to place them on your site. You have my permission to use any of the material I have on my site. Psalm 23 truly is so beautiful and comforting. Since I have been reading the scriptures looking for God’s love in them, I find it in almost every passage. What a wonderful Father we have. The message he sent us truly is the best Good News. Thank you again for wanting to take the time to translate my articles. God Bless, and take care.

      • Dear Leon, thank you so much for your kind permission and for your encouraging words. I am so grateful. And I am so glad that I will be able to cause such a nice surprise for my precious mother. Thank you so much! And please do keep writing – your sound biblical approach and deep insights into God’s Word are so much needed! I just love it how you explain things from God’s Word by the means of God’s Word:-). That’s what we are all ought to be doing: reading and deeply absorbing the Word and then living it out… May God help us progress in this! God bless you, Hajnalka
