For Thou Art With Me // The Whispers (Gospel, Scripture)

  • For Thou Art With Me
    • The Whispers (the 4th verse of Psalm 23 never sounded so good!)
  • SCRIPTURE (below), King James Version and The Message.
    • To give you two distinct looks at these beloved words from the 23rd Chapter of the Book of Psalm.

1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. 4 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.5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 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.   (KJV)

1 God, my shepherd! I don’t need a thing. 2 You have bedded me down in lush meadows, you find me quiet pools to drink from. 3 True to your word, you let me catch my breath and send me in the right direction. 4 Even when the way goes through Death Valley, I’m not afraid when you walk at my side. Your trusty shepherd’s crook makes me feel secure 5 You serve me a six-course dinner right in front of my enemies. You revive my drooping head; my cup brims with blessing. 6 Your beauty and love chase after me every day of my life. I’m back home in the house of God for the rest of my life.  (The Message)

    • Agreed. I rarely use The Message version (on this blog)…for some of the most hallowed words ever written, the awesomeness of the Psalm is greatly diminished. Seeing the versions side by side was revealing. I generally use NKJV, NIV, or NLT. Be blessed my friend. Peace. Greg
