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.

  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.

Salmos 23

Salmo de David.

1El Señor es mi pastor, nada me falta;
    en verdes pastos me hace descansar.
Junto a tranquilas aguas me conduce;
    me infunde nuevas fuerzas.
Me guía por sendas de justicia
    por amor a su nombre.

Aun si voy por valles tenebrosos,
    no temo peligro alguno
    porque tú estás a mi lado;
tu vara de pastor me reconforta.

Dispones ante mí un banquete
    en presencia de mis enemigos.
Has ungido con perfume mi cabeza;
    has llenado mi copa a rebosar.

La bondad y el amor me seguirán
    todos los días de mi vida;
y en la casa del Señor
    habitaré para siempre.
