Palm 23 is a
poem that is rich in history but also carries timeless advice that
can and should be carried into eternity. The poems narrator is
King David who formally served as a humble shepherd. He references
sheeps' relationships with their shepherd in order to share wisdom
about following the Lord. Sheep have one job (besides unconsciously

But he claimed truth and authority over evil by calling out to his shepherd and stating that he would be alright even during the darkest of times because he knew God would be with him.
