Why has "Psalm 23" transcended its times and escaped chronological bonds to become a classic work of Western world literature? With emphasis on a clarification of its substance and its structure, this study of "Psalm 23" as a literary text begins with an introduction to the piece in English, and then focuses on the poem as it appears in different versions of Holy Scripture - the "King James Version", the "Revised English Version", the "Jerusalem Bible", the "Good News Bible", etc. The overall relationship between psalmody and poetry is examined.
Samuel J. Rogal is Professor Emeritus at Illinois Valley Community College.
