Mizmor le'Dovid,
Hashem roei lo echsawr.
Binos desheh yarbitzaini, al mei menuchos yenahaleini.
Nafshi yeshovev yancheini bemagalei tzedek lema'an shemo.
Gam ki elech be'gei tzalmawves, lo iraw raw ki ataw imadi, shivtechaw u'mishantechaw hemaw yenachamuni.
Ta'aroch lefawnai shulchawn neged tzoriroi dishantaw vashemen roshi, cosi rivawyaw.
Ach tov vaw'chesed yirdifuni kol yemei chayoi ve'shavti be'veis Hashem l'orech yawmim.
מִזְמור לְדָוִד,
ה׳ רֹעִי לֹא אֶחְסָר.
בִּנְאוֹת דֶשֶׁא יֵרְבִּיצֵנִי,
עַל-מֵי מְנֻחוֹת
נַפְשִׁי יְשׁוֹבֵב, יַנְחֵנִי
בְמַעְגְלֵי-צֶדֶק לְמֵעֵן
גַם כִּי-אֵלֵךְ בְּגֵיא
צַלְמָוֶת לֹא-אִירָא רָע
כִּי-אַתָּה עִמָדִי, שִׁבְטְךָ
וּמִשְׁעַנְתֶּךָ הֵמָה
תַּעֲרֹךְ לְפָנַי
שֻׁלְחָן נֶגֶד צֹרְרָי,
דִשַנְתָּ בַשֶמֶן
רֹאשִי כּוֹסִי רְוָיָה.
אַךְ, טוֹב וָחֶסֶד
יִרְדְפוּנִי כָּל-יְמֵי חַיָי,
וְשַׁבְתִּי בְּבֵית-ה׳
לְאֹרֶךְ יָמִים.


A Psalm of David. The Lord is my shepherd;​ I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures:​
He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul:
He leads me in the paths of righteous​ness for his name's sake.
Thoug​h I walk through the valley of the shadow of Death,
I will 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 anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows​.
Surel​y goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Adapt​ed from 1917 JPS Translati​on


This Psalm is sung on several occasions during Shabbos, but it is usually also sung mournfully as the daylight fades at the end of the day of rest.
