blankText:
耶和华是我的牧者,我必不致缺乏 。
他使我躺卧在青草地上,领我在可安歇的水边。
他使我的灵魂苏醒,为自己的名引导我走义路。
我虽然行过死荫的幽谷,也不怕遭害,因为你与我同在;
你的杖,你的竿,都安慰我。
在我敌人面前,你为我摆设筵席;
你用油膏了我的头,使我的福杯满溢。
我一生一世必有恩惠慈爱随着我;
我且要住在耶和华的殿中,直到永远 。

blankTranslation:
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
