‘The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me to lie down in green pastures.
makes me to lie down = rabats (Hebrew) = stretch oneself out, lie stretched out
Brings to mind the extreme and luxurious state of rest when one is able to stretch and yawn, in the dream-like state between sleep and awakefulness, knowing there is no need to rush because there is nothing planned
‘He leads me beside the still waters.
He restores my soul.’
restores = shub (Hebrew) = returns, brings back, recompensed, recovered,
soul = nephesh (Hebrew) = a living being, life, self, person, desire, passion, appetite, emotion
God returns to us our desires, passion and literally brings us back to life.
