May 8 – Scripture of the Day


Today we continue in the Psalms. Included in today’s reading is the best known and perhaps most loved Psalm of all: Psalm 23.

A psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my shepherd;
   I have all that I need.
2 He lets me rest in green meadows;
   he leads me beside peaceful streams.
3     He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
   bringing honor to his name.
4 Even when I walk
 through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
   for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
   protect and comfort me.
5 You prepare a feast for me
   in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
   My cup overflows with blessings.
6 Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
   all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
