Walking Through The Valley (4 of 6)

verse in all of the Bible and may be the most beloved
verse in all the Bible. "Yea, though I walk through
the valley."

Preachers have used this verse to bring comfort to
families at the death of their loved ones. Many a
dying saint has quoted this verse of Scripture on
