Psalm 23

My parents have a recording of me reciting Psalm 23.  I'm around Ella's age, and when I get toward the end, instead of "in the presence of my enemies" I say, "in the presidents of my enemies."

Apparently, this misunderstanding of Psalm 23 is genetic.

We were sitting at lunch, and this is the conversation that followed.

Ella:  I don't like the name 'Sake'.
Me:  Who is named Sake?
Ella:  You know, in Psalm 23.  'He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name, Sake.'

It never once occurred to me to explain that part of the passage.  It never once occurred to me that it was confusing.  It never once occurred to me to really think through that verse myself. 

It has now occurred to me.
