Names of God in Psalm 23

Listening to pastor David Jeremiah one day when he pointed out how many of God’s names you see in Psalm 23:

The Lord is my Shepherd
You are Jehovah-Rohi, the Lord my shepherd

I shall not be in want
You are Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord who provides

He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside still waters
You are Jehovah-Shalom, the Lord my peace

He restores my soul
You are Jehovah-Rapha, the Lord who heals

He guides me in paths of righteousness for His name’s sake
You are Jehovah-Tsidkenu, the Lord my righteousness

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me, Your rod and staff, they comfort me
You are Jehovah-Shammah, the Lord who is always present

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies
You are Jehovah-Nissi, the Lord my banner

You anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows
You are Jehovah-M’kaddish, the Lord who makes me holy

Surely goodness and loving-kindness will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord, forever.
