    “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makethme to lie down in 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 they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mineenemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runnethover. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”   Psalm 23
