Quote

…thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life:
and I will live in the house of the LORD for ever.”
Mining camp preacher

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.
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies:
thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over
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.”
Bible, Psalm 24:4-6 Kiing James Version
