David (Scottish metrical version)
The Lord’s my shepherd, I’ll not want:
He makes me down to lie
In pastures green; he leadeth me
The quiet waters by.
My soul he doth restore again,
And me to walk doth make
Within the paths of righteousness,
E’en for his own name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk in death’s dark vale,
Yet will I fear no ills,
For though art with me, and thy rod
And staff me comfort still.
My table thou hast furnished
In presence of my foes.
My head thou dost with oil anoint,
And my cup overflows.
Goodness and mercy all my life
Shall surely follow me,
And in thy house forevermore
My dwelling place shall be.
One thought on “Psalm 23”
I love the way the Scottish would make psalms and Bible verses rhyme. It’s better for memorization! Also, I do believe they would marching into battle singing such psalms during their fight against the English.
