    Psalm 23 mentioned three things. They are the green pasture, quiet waters and soul restoration. It started with strong words like; 'i shall not want', and ended with high hopes; surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of life. our Lord Shepherd indeed promised ideal pasture and plenty of water. He even restores our soul with righteousness, comfort and joy in the midst of our foes .
