7 Things the Lord Does for the Believer in Psalm 23

The following is from the works of F.E. Marsh, a study series coming soon to the BLB.

The LORD Is My Shepherd

A Psalm of David.
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
      He makes me lie down in green pastures.
  He leads me beside still waters.fn
3      He restores my soul.
  He leads me in paths of righteousness
        for his name’s sake.
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 prepare a table before me
       in the presence of my enemies;
  you anoint my head with oil;
      my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
      all the days of my life,
  and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD

Listed below are 7 things the Lord does for the believer in Psalm 23:

  1. A sheep fed. “I shall not want” (verse 1).
  2. A child led. “He leads me beside the still waters” (verse 2).
  3. A backslider restored. “He restores my soul” (verse 3).
  4. A friend comforted. “your rod and your staff, they comfort me” (verse 4).
  5. A warrior feasted. “You prepare a table before me” (verse 5).
  6. A priest anointed. “you anoint my head” (verse 5).
  7. A pilgrim housed. “I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever” (verse 6).
