Amplified Bible

Psalm 23

The Lord, the Psalmist’s Shepherd.

A Psalm of David.

1The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, to guide and to shield me],
I shall not want.

He lets me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside the still and quiet waters.

He refreshes and restores my soul (life);
He leads me in the paths of righteousness
for His name’s sake.


Even though I walk through the [sunless] [a]valley of the shadow of death,
I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me.

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You have anointed and refreshed my head with [b]oil;
My cup overflows.

Surely goodness and mercy and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I shall dwell forever [throughout all my days] in the house and in the presence of the Lord.

Notas al pie

  1. Psalm 23:4 Or valley of deep darkness.
  2. Psalm 23:5 In ancient times it was customary in hot climates for a host to provide his guest with olive oil to put on his head. The Lord blesses and anoints His believers with the Holy Spirit, whom oil symbolizes, to prepare them for His service.

詩篇 23

耶和華是我的牧者

大衛的詩。

1耶和華是我的牧者,
我必一無所缺。
祂讓我安歇在青草地上,
領我到幽靜的溪水旁。
祂使我的心靈甦醒,
為了自己的名引導我走正路。
我縱使走過死亡的幽谷,
也不怕遭害,
因為你與我同在,
你的杖和竿帶給我安慰。
在我敵人面前你為我擺設宴席,
又用膏油澆我的頭,
使我恩福滿溢。
你的恩惠和慈愛必伴隨我一生,
我要永遠住在你的殿中。
