Psalm 23 – McLain Paraphrase

The One who is LORD over all things is my shepherd
I will not lack any needed thing

He causes me to rest in a place of abundance and beauty
He leads me to a place of peace and tranquilty where the waters are unmoving

When I am worn, He Himself is the fresh life to my soul,
He directs my steps to walk in right paths for the Glory of His great name

Even in the midst of the darkest night where danger lurks all around me, I remain unafraid because I look up and see You are still with me

Seeing Your limitless strength and power comforts me
You prepare a feast for me and invite me to sit with You even while those who hate me look on enviously

You pour Yourself so richly and undersevedly into me that my spirit overflows with joy

I am convinced that I shall never be without Your abundant goodness and lavish mercy no matter what happens in this life

and I know when I die it will merely be an ushering into Your presence where I shall most gladly live forever.
