The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 God, my shepherd! I don't need a thing. 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
2 You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from. 2 He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters,
3 True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction. 3 he restores my soul. He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
4 Even when the way goes through Death Valley, I'm not afraid when you walk at my side. Your trusty shepherd's crook makes me feel secure 4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
5 You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies. You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing. 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
6 Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I'm back home in the house of God for the rest of my life. 6 Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
