OM  34:196-200 (p279)


Creation is my companion, and I would not want.


 Creation nourishes me on its green pastures and leads me to fresh water.


Creation refreshes my psyche and it leads me on the right road, in its name.


Also, if I wander in the dark valley, I fear no misfortune, because you, Creation, are by me, your stick and staff comfort me.


Through Creation, goodness and mercy follow me all my life and I would remain in the house of Creation always.


OM, Kanon 34


196. Die Schöpfung ist meine Begleitung, und mir wird nichts mangeln.


197. Die Schöpfung nähret mich auf ihren grünen Auen und führet mich zum frischen Wasser.


198. Die Schöpfung erquickt meine Psyche, und sie führt mich auf der rechten Strasse, um ihres Namens willen.


199. Auch wenn ich wandere im finsteren Tale, fürchte ich kein Unglück, denn du, Schöpfung, bist bei mir; dein Stecken und Stab trösten mich.


200. Durch die Schöpfung folgen mir Gutes und Barmherzigkeit ein Leben lang, und ich werde bleiben im Hause der Schöpfung immerdar.


Old Testament (King James Version)

Psalms|23:1 A Psalm of David. The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.
Psalms|23:2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psalms|23:3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
Psalms|23:4 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.
Psalms|23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Psalms|23:6 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.


(Good News Version copyright American Bible Society 1976)

 The LORD is my shepherd;
 1. I have everything I need.
. He lets me rest in fields of green grass  and leads me to quiet pools of fresh water.
He gives me new strength. He guides me in the right paths,  as he has promised.
Even if I go through the deepest darkness,  I will not be afraid, LORD, for you are with me.
 Your shepherd's rod and staff protect me.
You prepare a banquet for me, where all my enemies can see  me; you welcome me as an honored guest and fill my cup to the brim.
I know that your goodness and  love will be with me all my  life;  and your house will be my home as long as I live.
