Looking for God in humanity.
Hello Ben, I chatted with you on Omegle. Nice to see you spreading your wisdom. :)
I think it's part of the "L-rd is my shepherd" imagery. G-d's shepherd staff leads the psalter through the Valley of the Shadow of death, and despite the fact that it's a walk to death, His guidance is comforting.
TPW, why are you saying it's a walk to death? Why is it not just the shadow of death (aka not real death)?
Maybe it's not real death. Maybe it is. Either way, the imagery is of a shepherd guiding his flock. And either way, it's a resignation to G-d's will.
When a sheep gets separated from the flock and is lost and alone.....there's nothing more comforting than the blow of his shepherds rod on his back...
