On Sunday, August 17, 2014 we looked together at Psalm 23. Mike Fahlman shared his journey and how Psalm 23 impacted his life over the last few years of his journey. Below I have included Psalm 23 in the King James Version and in the New Living Translation. On Sunday we were invited to write our version of Psalm 23 and to send it in to Cory at his email firstname.lastname@example.org
Psalm 23 is what God inspired David to write. The thought is for us to write our version. It is not meant to replace what David wrote, but to show how God has guided us through our journey.
Psalm 23 – King James Version (KJV)
1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Psalm 23 – New Living Translation (NLT)
1 The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3 He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
