N.B. the numbering of this psalm is one fewer in the Vulgate;

22.1  psalmus David Dominus reget me et nihil mihi deerit

22.2  in loco pascuae ibi; me conlocavit super aquam refectionis educavit me

22.3  animam meam convertit deduxit me super semitas iustitiae propter nomen suum

22.4  nam et si ambulavero in medio umbrae mortis non timebo mala quoniam tu mecum es virga tua et baculus tuus ipsa me consolata sunt

22.5  parasti in conspectu meo mensam adversus eos qui tribulant me inpinguasti in oleo caput meum et calix meus inebrians quam praeclarus est

22.6  et misericordia tua subsequitur me omnibus diebus vitae meae et ut inhabitem in domo Domini in longitudinem dierum

Church of England 1662 Book of Common Prayer

1  The Lord is my shepherd : therefore can I lack nothing.

2  He shall feed me in a green pasture : and lead me forth beside the waters of comfort.

3  He shall convert my soul : and bring me forth in the paths of righteousness, for his Name's sake.

4  Yea, thou 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 comfort me.

5  Thou shalt prepare a table before me against them that trouble me : thou hast anointed my head with oil, and my cup shall be full.

6  But thy loving-kindness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life : and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Isaac Watts The Psalms of David imitated in the language of the New Testament

1.

The Lord my Shepherd is,
I shall be well supplied.
Since He is mine and I am His,
What can I want beside?

2.

He leads me to the place
Where heav'nly pasture grows,
Where living waters gently pass
And full salvation flows.

3.

If e'er I go astray,
He doth my soul reclaim
And guides me in His own right way
For His most holy name.

4.

While He affords His aid,
I cannot yield to fear;
Though I should walk through death's dark shade,
My Shepherd's with me there.

5.

In spite of all my foes
Thou dost my table spread;
My cup with blessing overflows,
And joy exalts my head.

6.

The bounties of Thy love
Shall crown my following days,
Nor from Thy house will I remove
Nor cease to speak Thy praise.

Thomas Sternhold The Whole Book of Psalms Collected into English Meter, 1562

1.
My shepherd is the living Lord
nothing therefore I need:
In pastures fair, with waters calm
he sets me for to feed.

2.
He did convert and glad my soul,
and brought my mind in frame:
To walk in paths of righteousness,
For his most holy name.

3.
Yea though I walk in vale of death
yea I will fear none ill:
The rod, thy staff doth comfort me,
and thou art with me still.

4.
And in the presence of my foes,
my table thou shalt spread:
Thou shalt O Lord fill full my cup
and eke anoint my head.

5.
Through all my life thy favour is,
so frankly showed to me:
That in thy house for ever more
my dwelling place shall be.


Becker Psalter, 1602

German.png German text

Der Herr ist mein getreuer Hirt,
Dem ich mich ganz vertraue;
Zur Weid er mich, sein Schäflein führt
Auf schöner grüner Aue.
Zum frischen Wasser leit er mich,
Mein Seel zu laben kräftiglich
Durchs selig Wort der Gnaden.

Er führet mich auf rechter Bahn
Von seines Namens wegen;
Obgleich viel Trübsal geht heran
Aufs Todes finstern Stegen,
So grauet mir doch nichts dafür,
Mein treuer Hirt ist stets bei mir,
Sein Steck und Stab mich tröstet.

Ein köstlichn Tisch er mir bereit,
Sollts auch den Feind verdrießen;
Schenkt mir voll ein, das Öl der Freud
Über mein Haupt tut fließen.
Sein Güte und Barmherzigkeit
Werden mir folgen alle Zeit;
In seinem Haus ich bleibe.
