Psalm 23 Commentary
The 23rd Psalm was written by King David. A departure from his usual psalms of complaint, Psalm 23 is an expression of positive feeling towards God as our righteous provider and protector. Our good shepherd.
Clearly the most beloved and well-known of all psalms, Psalm 23 has declared "The Lord is My Shepherd" to the delight of all believers for millennia, and will do doubt continue to bestow comfort and blessings until our Lord's return.
