Psalm 23

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.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

  1. Thank you very much for this contribution. I will be back.

    In these current apparently troubling times and with a media displaying an ‘alarmist’ leaning in reporting it is wonderful to hear such positive views as those espoused here. Mary Baker Eddy with her interpretation then is as relevant now as she was all those years ago. My heart and chest swelled throughout your readings. It was indeed a physical ‘feel good’ moment; an uplifting experience.

    Psalm 23 is interesting when read in association with the old testament where much is made of fearing God and being fearful, but in psalm 23 ….: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, and Mary Baker Eddy’s interpretation of Divine Love as ever present and manifestly a spirit of ‘good’ and having no evil there can be no need for an alarmist or fearful view of either personal problems or those of a national or global scale.

    The bible readings and parallel? interpretations contribute so much more than a superficial positive thinking approach to a broader philosophical question: the application of Love to beyond oneself with a deeper understanding of the bible through understanding how scientific the work of Mary Baker Eddy has been.
