Many of us know the 23rd Psalm by rote.  As children we probably memorized it in Sunday School or perhaps we were taught the Psalm at home by our parents or other family members.  In whatever manner we learned it, it soon became automatic without our realizing its full meaning. 

Following is an interpretation of its meaning, taken from Daily Studies in Divine Science):  

“The Twenty-Third Psalm

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’s 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 Instruction

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies Supply

Thou annointest my head with oil Consecration

My cup runneth over Abundance

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life Loving Care

And I will dwell in the house of the Lord Forever Consciousness of Love

Daily Affirmation:  I AM in His Presence Always
