Gam Ki Elech b'gay Tzalmavet
Lo Irah rah ki atah imadi
Shivtecha omishantecha hemah y'nachamuni
גַּם כִּי-אֵלֵךְ
בְּגֵיא צַלְמָוֶת
לֹא-אִירָא רָע
כִּי-אַתָּה עִמָּדִי

שִׁבְטְךָ וּמִשְׁעַנְתֶּךָ
הֵמָּה יְנַחֲמֻנִי.


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.
