Matthew Poole on Psalm 23:1

I preached last Sunday morning on Psalm 23.  In that message, I borrowed this quote from Matthew Poole on "I shall not want" (v. 1):

I shall not want, to wit, any thing which is really necessary for me, either for this life or for the next.  But foolish man may think many things to be necessary for him, which the all-wise God knoweth to be not only unnecessary, but hurtful, and therefore mercifully denies what men ignorantly desire to their hurt.
