    I have been looking for such a commentary on the King James version of 1611 for a long time. This interpretation is simple and makes the reading of the word that much more meaningful to me. Thank you.

    I love to read Psalms 23. When I was a little child my mother would say this verses all the time around the house. She said it do much, i learn the words listen to her. She would tell me to recite this verse everyday. One of my favorite today.
