God’s spiritual benefits to faithful souls.
A psalm for David.
The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing. He hath set me in a place of pasture.
He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment: he hath converted my soul.
He hath led me on the paths of justice, for his own name’s sake.
For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me.
Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me.
Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me.
Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!
And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life.
And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days.
Psalm 22. Ver. 1. “Ruleth me”. In Hebrew, “Is my shepherd”, viz., to feed, guide, and govern me.
