1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

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.

5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

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.

The Inner Meanings of the 23rd Psalm      

By Rev. Julian Duckworth

Psalm 23 is undoubtedly the most well-known and well-loved of all the psalms with its illustration of the Lord as our shepherd. In the various descriptions of what a shepherd does for the sheep we are told what the Lord does for us in our spiritual journey.

As the psalm unfolds we continue to hear more about the Lord’s work for us, during states in our lives when we could be unsure and afraid, and of the Lord’s provision for us. Gradually the speaker confirms his trust in the Lord’s guidance and declares the many blessings the Lord brings. The psalm ends with an emphatic statement that goodness and mercy will always be present and a closing assurance of dwelling in the house of the Lord for ever.

This psalm of six verses would surely have been known and loved by the Lord during his life in the world as a statement of faith in his purpose to overcome evil and glorify his humanity. Jesus, in human states, would often have looked to his own divinity as his shepherd, and seen it as his anchor and provider. For us, spiritually, the same parallel applies, that our faith in the Lord is to be our trust and guide at all times.

The run of shepherding care in verses 2 and 3 speak about how the Lord leads us into acquiring new truths that bring heavenly peace and rest for us. Our state is lifted up and we live in goodness because we understand that this is the divine quality that God wishes for us to live by. (See Apocalypse Explained 375 and Arcana Caelestia 3696)

Still with shepherding, the valley of the shadow of death describes our states of being afraid and of not seeing the Lord with us during which our mind can be filled with disturbing and mocking thoughts. But we know that the Lord is there with us nonetheless. The “rod” and “staff” represent the power of the Lord’s truths for us to use; a rod is pointed out and stands for spiritual truths, a staff is leaned on and stands for natural truths or truths to do with life.”
(Apocalypse Explained 727)

With the provision of truth from the Lord it follows on to the picture of the table of bounty which truth brings to us as our spiritual nourishment and satisfaction. Our head anointed with oil has many associations of being the Lord’s chosen, of being loved and blessed by the Lord, and of how our mind with its understanding receives love and good to make it full of heavenly joy. “My cup runs over” means the unknown extent of the truths of the Word and the blessings of the Lord. (Apocalypse Explained 727)

The final verse is put in term of our full conviction of being in the Lord for ever and in all the days of our lives. What we experience and say in terms of time and duration spiritually means what is certain, perpetual and to all eternity. The ‘house of the Lord’ is heaven. (Arcana Caelestia 650)

Commentary

 

시편 23 편      

By Mr. Brian P. David (machine translated into 한국어)

The Lord as Shepherd, by Nana Schnarr

시편 23 편은 세계에서 가장 유명하고 가장 사랑받는 문학 작품 중 하나이며, 지금까지 쓰여진 최고의 시일 수도 있습니다. 또한 우리는 비유적인 언어의 힘을 보여주는 훌륭한 예입니다. 우리는 양으로서 자신의 비전에 깊은 것을 읽고, 친절한 목자에 의해 녹색 목초지와 좋은 물로 이끌었습니다. 죽음의 그림자의 계곡으로 두려움없이 들어가고, 주님 께서 준비하신 식탁과 잔이 너무 가득 차서 사랑과 돌보심을 느낄 수 있다는 확신을 심어줍니다.

그러나 사람들이 모르는 것은이 언어는 실제로 정확한 내부 의미를 가지고 있으며, 우리가 볼 때시에는 더 깊은 아름다움이 있다는 것입니다. 그것이 실제로 묘사하는 것은 천국으로가는 길이고, 주님 께서 우리를 그곳으로 인도 해 주시기를 간절히 원하기 때문입니다.

첫 단계는 주님을 우리의 목자가되도록하는 것입니다 – 그분의 가르침과 지도력을 받아들이십시오. 녹색 목초지와 아직도 바닷물은 그분이 여행을 위해 우리에게 가르치실 것들을 나타냅니다. 그런 다음 그분은 우리가 선한 일을하고 서로를 사랑하기를 원하면서 우리의 영적 삶을 정돈하는 일을 시작하셨습니다. 그것은 우리의 영혼을 회복시키고 우리를 의의 길로 인도함으로써 표현됩니다.

그러나 우리는 여전히 도전에 직면 할 것입니다. 우리는 여전히 세상에서 외부 생활을하고 있으며, 외부 생활, 육체 생활에서 일어나는 욕망에 처해 있습니다. 그것이 죽음의 그림자의 계곡입니다. 그러나 봉과 지팡이는 외부와 내부 차원에서 주님으로부터 온 진리를 나타내며 그러한 욕망으로부터 우리를 방어 할 수있는 아이디어입니다.

그리고 우리가 계속 따라 가면 주님께서는 우리를 위해 식탁을 준비하실 것입니다. 우리 안에는 사랑 (기름 부음 기름)과 지혜 (넘치는 컵)로 채워질 수있는 곳이 있습니다. 이와 같이 변화된 우리는 다른 사람들에 대한 사랑 (“선”)과 주님의 사랑 (“자비”)으로 천국에 들어갈 수 있으며 영원한 사랑과 사랑을받을 수 있습니다.

이것에 관한 많은 아름다운 것들 중 하나는 실제로 모든 일을하는 사람이 주님이라는 사실입니다. 본문 전체에서 양들이 취하는 유일한 행동은 죽음의 그림자 골짜기를 걷는 것입니다. 그 외에는 주님을 따르고 주님을 신뢰하며 주님의 축복을 받아들입니다. 그리고 그것은 사실입니다! 외부의 주 (계곡)에서는 우리 자신이 사업을하고있는 것처럼 보이지만, 내부적으로, 영적으로 우리는 단순히 주님 께 자신을주고 그분을 축복해야합니다.

여기에있는 기본 개념은 주님 께서 우리를 사랑하실 수 있도록 우리를 창조 하셨다는 것입니다. 우리에게. 그래서 행성의 모든 사람을 위해 매일 매 순간마다 그분이하는 모든 일은 그 사람을 천국으로 이끄는 목표에 집중됩니다. 그분은 우리가 상상할 수있는 것보다 하늘에있는 우리 모두를 원하신다. 우리는 단지 협력해야합니다.
