The TwentyThird Psalm

I awoke one morning with this Psalm in my mind.
I was actually saying to the Lord that the way I am hearing one particular line being said (My cup runneth over surely), was not the way I knew it.
What I learnt was: “my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall…”

This is how the Psalm was being recited: (words in quotation were emphasized, sentences in full capital were declared and all other words were calmly/soothingly/refreshingly stated.)

The Lord “IS” my Shepherd
i shall not want.
“HE”, maketh me, to lie down in green pastures.
“HE”, leadeth me, beside the still waters.
“HE”, restoreth my soul.
“HE”, leadeth me, in the paths of righteousness.

FOR “HIS” NAME SAKE
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.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies,
Thou annointest my head with oil,
My cup runneth over surely.

Goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Now, whenever I recite this Psalm, I make sure to say “my cup runneth over surely”.

A great blessing...Thanks for sharing. The TwentyThird Psalm is also a favourite of mine. I've written a few versions of it, just as you have. It is a personal psalm for anyone to claim. And you claimed it...Blessings...Helen

What a blessing. Love that psalm, and this gives me a whole new perspective on it.
