Chapter 23
1O Senhor é o meu pastor; nada me faltará.    2Deitar-me faz em pastos verdejantes; guia-me mansamente a águas tranqüilas.    3Refrigera a minha alma; guia-me nas veredas da justiça por amor do seu nome.    4Ainda que eu ande pelo vale da sombra da morte, não temerei mal algum, porque tu estás comigo; a tua vara e o teu cajado me consolam.    5Preparas uma mesa perante mim na presença dos meus inimigos; unges com óleo a minha cabeça, o meu cálice transborda.    6Certamente que a bondade e a misericórdia me seguirão todos os dias da minha vida, e habitarei na casa do Senhor por longos dias.
