         PSALM 22 New Douai Rheims Version
  1. ¶The Psalm of David.  
Our Lord ruleth me, and nothing shall be wanting to me:

2. in place of pasture there he hath placed me.  
Upon the water of refection* he hath brought me up: 

3. he hath converted my soul. 
 He hath conducted* me upon the paths of justice,
 for his name.

 4. For, although I shall walk in the midst of the 
shadow of death, 
I will not fear evils, 
because thou art with me. 
Thy rod, and thy staff, they have comforted me.

  5. Thou hast prepared in my sight a table, 
against them that trouble me; 
thou hast fatted my head with oil; 
and my chalice inebriating how goodly is it!

6. And thy mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. 
And that I may dwell in the house of our Lord, in longitude of days.

he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness 
for his name's sake.

4.  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 
I will fear no evil: 
for thou art with me; 
thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

5. Thou preparest a table before me 
in the presence of mine enemies: 
thou anointest my head with oil; 
my cup runneth over.

6. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: 
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
