Psalm 23 Explained in Todays Terms
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
In His presence I am supplied with all I need for today.

He leads me beside quiet waters,
In His presence I am quieted from the turmoil in and around me.
He restores my soul.
In His presence I am built up, forgiven, refreshed.
He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
In His presence I am guided along the right paths for me, paths that will honor His name.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
In His presence I can be fearless in trusting Him even with destruction and death are all around me.
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
In His presence I am comforted because I know He is equipped to watch over for me.
You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies.
In His presence I am nourished and protected even when I’m in unfriendly territory.
You anoint my head with oil;
In His presence He anoints me with healing and with love.
My cup overflows.
In His presence I am filled to overflowing regardless of outer circumstances.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,
I am pursued by His mercy and His goodness every day.
His presence calls me.
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
In His presence I am secure for today and forever.
