The Message

Psalm 23

A David Psalm

11-3 God, my shepherd!
    I don’t need a thing.
You have bedded me down in lush meadows,
    you find me quiet pools to drink from.
True to your word,
    you let me catch my breath
    and send me in the right direction.

Even when the way goes through
    Death Valley,
I’m not afraid
    when you walk at my side.
Your trusty shepherd’s crook
    makes me feel secure.

You serve me a six-course dinner
    right in front of my enemies.
You revive my drooping head;
    my cup brims with blessing.

Your beauty and love chase after me
    every day of my life.
I’m back home in the house of God
    for the rest of my life.

Nnwom 23

Awurade, yɛn Guanhwɛfo

1Awurade ne me hwɛfo, hwee renhia me. Ɔma meda wura frɔmfrɔm adidibea. Ogya me kɔ nsu a ɛho dwo ho. Odwudwo me kra. Ɔde me fa akwantrenee so, ne din nti.

Sɛ menam owu sum kabii mu mpo a, minsuro, Awurade, efisɛ, wo ne me na ɛwɔ hɔ. W’abaa ne wo poma na ɛkyerɛ me kwan.

Wotow me pon m’atamfo anim. Wode ngo fɔw me tirim. Me kuruwa yɛ ma bu so.

Yiye ne adɔe nko na ebedi m’akyi me nkwa nna nyinaa; na mɛtena Awurade fi daa.
