Psalm 23 is the single most famous, most memorized, most beloved poem in all of literature. But it is even more meaningful when it is placed in its true context--as the middle "panel" of a triptych which spans Psalms 22, 23, and 24.
triptych is a display which stretches across three panels. Here's an example, called "Cross, Shepherd, & Crown" which presents the inter-relationship of Psalms 22, 23, & 24:

My God, my God, why?
I'll type no more today. I leave you with the Lamb of God, in the Holy of Holies.
