    The first verse really says all I need. He is my shepherd. His is the bread that sustains my spirit and my mortal flesh. His rod and staff are a resting place that gives the comfort of direction and protection against all that would do harm. It is fulfillment of all promises and a statement of love. In His name and by His Son(Acts 17:31).
    The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.
