Psalm 23 Prepositionally

James Smith's* Handfuls on Purpose includes the following outline of Psalm 23. While I wouldn't use this as my main preaching outline, it might make for a good illustration or supplement to a message.

Psalm 23 (again).

1. Beneath me, "green pastures."
2. Beside me, "still waters."
3. With me, "my Shepherd."
4. Before me, "a table."
5. Around me, "mine enemies."
6. Upon me, "anointing."
7. After me, "goodness and mercy." 

8. Beyond me, "The house of the Lord."
— Selected.

James Smith and Robert Lee, Handfuls on Purpose for Christian Workers and Bible Students, I–XIII, vol. 7 (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1947), 123.

* James Smith wrote the first ten volumes before his death and the later volumes were completed by Robert Lee.
