“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.”
King James Version (KJV)

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me - God will bestow them upon me. This is the "result" of what is stated in the previous verses. The effect of God's merciful dealings with him had been to lead his mind to the assurance that God would always be his shepherd and friend; that He would never leave him to want.
All the days of my life - Through all its changes; in every variety of situation; until I reach its close. Life indeed would end, and he does not venture to conjecture when that would be; but as long as life should continue, he felt confidently assured that everything needful for him would be bestowed upon him. The language is the utterance of a heart overflowing with joy and gratitude in the recollection of the past, and full of glad anticipation (as derived from the experience of the past) in regard to the future.And I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever - Margin, as in Hebrew: "to length of days." The expression, I think, does not refer to eternity or to heaven, but it is parallel with the former expression "All the days of my life;" that is, he would dwell in the house of the Lord as long as he lived - with the idea added here, which was not in the former member of the sentence, that his life would be long, or that he hoped and anticipated that he would live long on the earth. The phrase used here, "I will dwell in the house of the Lord," is one that is several times employed in the Psalms as indicative of the wish of the psalmist. Thus, in Psalm 27:4, "One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life." Psalm 26:8, "lord, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the place where thine honor dwelleth." Psalm 65:4, "blessed is the man whom thou choosest, and causest to approach unto thee, that he may dwell in thy courts."Psalm 84:4, "blessed are they that dwell in thy house."

In the almost forty years that I have been with my Lord : Through the Good times and through the bad times : My God is Faithful as long as I call on Him and want Him in my life. Words cannot express how much we are loved by our Lord. Wonderful : Wonderful Love !!!!

Jim's comment on 2014-01-28 06:57:05:
One minister said I look on one shoulder and goodness is following me. I look on the other shoulder and mercy is following me. Thinking about His goodness and mercy to me this morning. Where would we be without Him. God is so good. If you are discouraged today, look up He is here to provide for our every need.
Toni's comment on 2014-01-25 04:51:23:
As I was praying this morning, this scripture came to my mind...and I remember thinking, how nice it would be if the KJV online scripture happened to be these verses. Sure enough, when I arrived at work and clicked on the online KJV, one of the verses from this chapter was the featured verse. God knows what we need and He most certainly answers prayers. There is so much joy and peace in Psalms 23. We know that the Lord is our Shepherd and He will never leave us nor forsake us. Trusting in God will lead to everlasting mercy and grace. Thank you Lord for hearing my cries. I know you will make a way for your little ones.

This shows that only with GOD all things are possible.......
John o's comment on 2013-10-15 00:53:52:
The Lord's goodness and mercy shall follow me, tells us that His mercy will always speak for us, when God's mercy begin to speak for you, you get what you are not qualified to get because of His mercy.
His goodness simply mean,you will have good health,everything concerning you will be good,only if you follow Him like a sheep.
