Dominus regit me. God's spiritual benefits to faithful souls.
1 A psalm for David. The Lord ruleth me: and I shall want nothing.
Psalmus David. Dominus regit me, et nihil mihi deerit :
2 He hath set me in a place of pasture. He hath brought me up, on the water of refreshment:
in loco pascuae ibi me collocavit. Super aquam refectionis educavit me,
3 He hath converted my soul. He hath led me on the paths of justice, for his own name's sake.
animam meam convertit. Deduxit me super semitas justitiae, propter nomen suum.
4 For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will fear no evils, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff, they have comforted me.
Nam, etsi ambulavero in medio umbrae mortis, non timebo mala, quoniam tu mecum es. Virga tua, et baculus tuus, ipsa me consolata sunt.
5 Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me. Thou hast anointed my head with oil; and my chalice which inebriateth me, how goodly is it!
Parasti in conspectu meo mensam, adversus eos qui tribulant me; impinguasti in oleo caput meum; et calix meus inebrians quam praeclarus est!
6 And thy mercy will follow me all the days of my life. And that I may dwell in the house of the Lord unto length of days.
Et misericordia tua subsequetur me omnibus diebus vitae meae; et ut inhabitem in domo Domini, in longitudinem dierum.
