Psalm 23:1 – David, the writer of the psalm, grew up a shepherd. The comparison helps us understand God’s loving care.

The wants even more than the needs motivate us to do what we do.

James 4:1-3
When Yahweh is your Shepherd, you can be free from the wants and

thereby enjoy peace and contentment.

– Yahweh provides the essentials of life for His sheep [those who allow Him].

Matthew 6:33
– Seek first His kingdom…all these things will be added to you.

Philippians 4:19
– My God will supply all your needs according to His riches….

– He restores my soul – Psalms 119:25, 37, 40, 50, 88, 93, 107, 149, 154, 156, and 159

He guides me in the path of righteousness. The shepherd, not the sheep, knows

the right way to go. Proverbs 2:1-15

4 – “The valley of the shadow of death” can be translated “valley of deep darkness.” Yahweh is always with you. Psalm 139:1-12

The rod and staff guide and provide for the sheep and keep treacherous animals away. 1Samuel 17:34-37

5 – While your enemies try to disgrace you, Yahweh will exalt you.

The oil protects and heals.

My cup overflows – I have all that I need and more. Because Yahweh is my shepherd, I shall not want.

6 – Yahweh’s sheep have goodness and mercy or lovingkindness with them all the days of their life, and they will be with Him forever.

God loves you. Be ye thankful.
