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.
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.
13 And I will lead them away from the peoples, and I will gather them from the lands, and I will bring them into their own land. And I will pasture them on the mountains of Israel, by the rivers, and in all the settlements of the land.
14 I will feed them in very fertile pastures, and their pastures will be on the lofty mountains of Israel. There they will rest on the green grass, and they will be fed in the fat pastures, on the mountains of Israel.
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.
