He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. 4) 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 me. 5) Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest me head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6) Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”
