One thing I should do more often is feature other people’s blogs on my small slice of the internet. Today I want to share a blog by Linda Owens called Absolute Grace. Linda has just completed a series on one of my favorite psalms and done a marvelous job of researching the subject. Thank you, Linda.
On her site you will also find pictures by her husband, John, who is quite a remarkable photographer. Please drop by and browse around a little. Spend some time there and you will leave refreshed and encouraged.
Let me post how the ESV renders this most beautiful psalm:
The Lord Is My Shepherd
A Psalm of David.
23:1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters. 
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness 
for his name’s 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 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
