There are Psalms, and there is the Psalm 23.
The inspired Word of God needs no distinction through the exaltation of one over the other. But for the Psalm 23, it is the completion to our lack, the provision to our depletion. It erases our path of wrong and set us on the path of righteousness. A peace in the time of conflict, and struggle. An assurance of victory, before the battle.
Though it serves as the most quoted Psalm ever. Yet for the many who have quoted these passages, and the countless who will in the future; unobserved are the names and title of God within the Psalm 23. Of which administers to the reader an insightful discernment and an improved communication with the Lord.
One cannot Expound all the wealth of the Psalm 23 in a single presentation, but for this exposition; we shall observe the names and titles of God that are imbedded in the passages below, and the promises therein.
The LORD is my shepherd; (JEHOVAH- Rohi) I shall not want. (JEHOVAH-Jireh) He makes me to lie down in green pastures: (JEHOVAH Shalom) He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul: (JEHOVAH-Rophe) He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake (JEHOVAH-Tsidkenu). 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. (JEHOVAH-Shammah) Thou prepare a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: (JEHOVAH-Nissi) Thou anoint my head with oil; my cup runs over. (JEHOVAH-Mekoddishkem) Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever. (Yahweh)
