shall not want. 2 He maketh
me to lie down in green
pastures: He leadeth me
beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul:

righteousness for his name’s
Yea, though I walk
through the valley of the
shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: for thou
art with me; Thy rod and
thy staff they comfort

before me in the
presence of mine
Thou anointest my head
with oil; my cup runneth

neighbors wife…
