As they pass through the valley of Baca, they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength till each appears before God in Zion.
He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken but endures forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds his people both now and forevermore.
I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world, you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
