The Lord is my shepherd (Psalm 23:1-14)

Don Maitland, 17 November 2013

Part of the Topical series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Psalm 23 is probably the most well-known Psalm. While Psalm 22 relates to the Cross (in the past), and Psalm 24 relates to the Crown (in the future), Psalm 23 relates to the Crook and deals with the present. It is a Psalm with profound consequences.

Psalm 23:1-14

1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4Yea, 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 they comfort me. 5Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever. (KJV)
