A Closing Thought:
The 23rd Psalm has sometimes been called the Psalm of the Shepherd with the Crook.
The “crook” relates to the part of the shepherd’s staff that is curved. This Psalm lies between the Psalm of the Cross and the Psalm of the Crown. If Psalm 22 tells us of the Good Shepherd who died for His sheep, then Psalm 23 tells of the Chief Shepherd who is coming again to receive His sheep into the eternal home. Psalm 23 tells us of the Great Shepherd who lives to guide, provide, protect, comfort, and cheer the sheep of His pasture.
