Sunday's Psalm--28th Sunday in Ordinary Time

I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.


The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

In verdant pastures he gives me repose;

beside restful waters he leads me;

he refreshes my soul.



I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.




He guides me in right paths
for his name's sake.


Even though I walk in the dark valley


 I fear no evil;

for you are at my side
with your rod and your staff
that give me courage.




I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

You spread the table before me
in the sight of my foes;

you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.




I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

Only goodness and kindness follow me
all the days of my life;
and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD
for years to come.

I shall live in the house of the Lord all the days of my life.

from Psalm 23

Visit other Psalms on Sundays in Robert's challenge at Athens Daily.
The challenge is in its 29th week so most will be illustrating Psalm 29.
 (I continue my commitment of posting the Psalm from the Sunday liturgy.)

Psalm 23 is also my favourite and your images are great.

Lovely illustrations, Katney (as always).
This translation is quite pleasant and flowing and clearer to understand than the older ones.

A blessed Sunday to you.

The Dall Sheep ram looks very regal indeed, as if he owns the whole mountain!

Feeling secure, was what came first to my mind, looking at your images.

Thank you very much for your kindness to participate. Please have a good new week and please join again soon.
