A Cynic Looks at Psalm 23

"The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He leads me beside still waters.
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.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

If The Good Shepherd is gone, we are alone in a world of evil.

(Miller, Paul. A Praying Life.)
