Psalm 23

Lamentation (persecuted and accused) / Trust (individual)

God Is My Shepherd

                1 The LORD is my shepherd,

                I shall not want.

·         If you would be happy, set your hope in God alone.

·         Nothing created or liable to change can do us permanent good.

·         David, though he lived long, never wrote but one twenty-third Psalm.

·         God’s people have their seasons of darkness and their times of rejoicing.

·         “The prophet has not at all times been so happy; he has not been able at all times to sing as he does here.” (Luther)

·         Never hew out cisterns which can hold no water.
