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.

Salmos 23

Salmo 23

Salmo davídico.

O Senhor é o meu pastor; de nada terei falta.
Em verdes pastagens me faz repousar
    e me conduz a águas tranqüilas;
restaura-me o vigor.
Guia-me nas veredas da justiça
    por amor do seu nome.

Mesmo quando eu andar
    por um vale de trevas e morte,
não temerei perigo algum, pois tu estás comigo;
    a tua vara e o teu cajado me protegem.

Preparas um banquete para mim
    à vista dos meus inimigos.
Tu me honras,
    ungindo a minha cabeça com óleo
    e fazendo transbordar o meu cálice.
Sei que a bondade e a fidelidade
    me acompanharão todos os dias da minha vida,
e voltarei à[a] casa do Senhor enquanto eu viver.
