1 A Psalm of David. The Lord directs me, and nothing will be lacking to me.
2 He has settled me here, in a place of pasture. He has led me out to the water of refreshment.
3 He has converted my soul. He has led me away on the paths of justice, for the sake of his name.
4 For, even if I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils. For you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they have given me consolation.
5 You have prepared a table in my sight, opposite those who trouble me. You have anointed my head with oil, and my cup, which inebriates me, how brilliant it is!
6 And your mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and so may I dwell in the house of the Lord for length of days.
Ezekiel 34:11-12, 15-17
11 For thus says the Lord God: Behold, I myself will seek my sheep, and I myself will visit them.
12 Just as a shepherd visits his flock, in the day when he will be in the midst of his sheep that were scattered, so will I visit my sheep. And I will deliver them from all the places to which they had been scattered in the day of gloom and darkness.
15 I will feed my sheep, and I will cause them to lie down, says the Lord God.
16 I will seek what had been lost. And I will lead back again what had been cast aside. And I will bind up what had been broken. And I will strengthen what had been infirm. And I will preserve what was fat and strong. And I will feed them on judgment.
17 But as for you, O my flocks, thus says the Lord God: Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle, among rams and among he-goats.
