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.

King James Version

Psalm 23

1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

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.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

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.
