mizmor ledavid yehova roi lo ekhsar : bin'ot deshe yarbitzeni
al-mey menukhot yenahaleni : nafshi yeshovev yankheni bema'agley-tzedek
lema'an shmo : gam ki-elekh begey tzalmavet lo-ira ra ki-ata imadi
shivtekha umishantekha hema yenakhamuni : ta'arokh lefanay shulkhan neged
tzoreray dishanta bashemen roshi kosi revaya : akh tov vakhesed irdefuni
kol-yemey khayay veshavti beveit-yehova leorekh yamim :
(poetry for David, Jehovah is my shepherd I shall
not want : on grass fields he'll lay me, on calm waters
he'll direct me : my soul he'll make joyful, will guide
me in justice-circles for his name : even if I'll walk in
death-shadow valley I shall not fear because you are with me,
your staff and your support they will comfort me : you
will set up for me a table against my enemies, in oil you
cover my head and filled is my glass : but kindness and
charity will seek me all my life and I shall sit in Jehovah's
house for days on)
