A lot of people consider the King James version of the Bible really hard to read — which is true a lot of the time.
But I still love the King James version of the 23rd Psalm. I haven’t seen a single other translation in which the poetry of the 23rd Psalm is as beautiful as it is in the King James version. I could meditate on this poetry all day long.
1The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
4 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.
5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.Psalm 23 KJV
