for the sake of his reputation.

I fear no danger,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff reassure me.
23:5 You prepare a feast before me
in plain sight of my enemies.
You refresh my head with oil;
my cup is completely full.

and I will live in the Lord’s house for the rest of my life.

Serve the Lord Christ. 3:25 For the one who does wrong will be repaid for his wrong, and there are no exceptions.
