MSG 1 God, my shepherd! I don't need a thing. NIV 1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. MSG 2 You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from.

He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake. MSG 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 NIV 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. MSG 5 You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies. You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing. NIV 5 You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. MSG 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. NIV 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.
