  • That is a passage from Psalm 23 of the Bible. This is in the Old Testament so it was Jewish first and now Christians, who follow the Old and New Testaments, consider this passage a well known one. Hope this helps.

  • Yes it is a well known scripture in the bible.
    Psalm 23 (NASB)
    The LORD, the Psalmist's Shepherd.
    A Psalm of David.
    1The LORD is my shepherd,
    I shall not want.
    2He makes me lie down in green pastures;
    He leads me beside quiet waters.
    3He restores my soul;
    He guides me in the paths of righteousness
    For His name's sake.
    4Even though I walk through the [a]valley of the shadow of death,
    I fear no [b]evil, for You are with me;
    Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
    5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
    You have anointed my head with oil;
    My cup overflows.
    6Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life,
    And I will [c]dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

  • scripture comes namely from Christianity.

    Answer by xxhazeldovexx at 7:47 AM on Feb. 18, 2010

  • Psalms were written by David. The text is Jewish. It was then adopted by the Christians. The text does not cease to be Jewish because the Christians also revere the work.

    They are works of religious poetry. This particular passage is so famous, it's even in the film Pulp Fiction.

  • And the 'LORD' in this Psalm is Jehovah not Jesus.

  • Jehovah is just another name for Jesus. Isaiah 40:3

    Here's a very familiar passage, Joel 2:32: "And it will come about that whoever calls on the name of [Jehovah] Will be [saved]." Both Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13 quote that passage, applying the title Jehovah to Christ.
