Bread For The Journey

When I read Psalm 23 I like to read it in the King James version. Maybe it's because that is how I memorized it years ago. No matter what version you read these are wonderful words of encouragement and comfort for us in our time of need.

Psalm 23(KJV)

1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
