He guides me in paths of righteousness, For his name sake. 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 prepare a table for me In the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; My cup overflows. 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.
