Although the exact date Psalm 23 was written is unknown, there are still speculations surrounding the story. Some believe it involves David’s son, Absalom, and his attempt to become a king. Upon crossing into the land called Gilead, Absalom met Barzillai, a shepherd who gave David’s son shelter and food. Hearing of this shepherd’s goodwill, David began to draw comparisons between Jesus and a shepherd- creating Psalm 23. Like a shepherd, Jesus provides guidance, strength, and love, all of which are included in this piece.
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul;
He guides me in the paths of righteousness
For His name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow
of death, I fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the
presence of my enemies;
You have anointed my head with oil;
My cup overflows. Surely goodness and loving kindness
will follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”
