“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.”
King James Version (KJV)
23:4 Thy rod and thy staff - Two words denoting the same thing, and both designing God's pastoral care over him.
23:5 A table - Thou furnishest me with plenty of provisions and comforts. Oil - With aromatic ointments, which were then used at great feasts; thy comforts delight my soul. Runneth over - Thou hast given me a plentiful portions, signified by the cup, given to the guests by the master of the feast.
