Psalm 23 is perhaps the single most famous psalm. You can explain to a child that this is a sheep’s portrait of a shepherd. The sheep may stray, but it knows that the shepherd will pull it back from the cliff. The shepherd will find the sheep the tender grass, not the dry stalks; a quiet bit of the river, not a raging part where the current could sweep an animal away.

But did you know the “valley of the shadow of death” is not in the original Hebrew?
