I would like a translation into Latin of a phrase from the famous
bible verse Psalms 23.  The phrase is "I will fear no evil, for thou
art with me."  Can you either translate the quote into Latin or give
me the phrase from a Latin Bible?

I can do both! As I was researching your question and translating, I
then found a little birdie who helped me out by whispering the end in
my ear as well. So, I then came up with some links and a translation
for you.

The phrase in latin is "Nam et si ambulavero in medio umbrae mortis:
non timebo mala, quoniam tu mecum es"

For though I should walk in the midst of the shadow of death, I will
fear no evils, for thou art with me

    nam et si ambulavero in medio umbrae mortis non timebo mala
quoniam tu mecum es virga tua et baculus tuus ipsa me consolata sunt"

From the Holy Bible in Vulgate translation.

There you go. Enjoy. Latin is such a beautiful language, and, after
today, I seem to know 2 people who speak it.

Oops! Also...

When I did a google search for the latin tranlation I posted first,
that's how I found the webpages.

so the actual translation of "I will fear no evil, for thou art with
me" is "non timebo mala, quoniam tu mecum es", correct?  I am getting
the quote inscribed in a tatoo i am getting so i want to make sure i
get it right! i don't think i can fit the whole quote thats why i
shortened it. thanks for your help

You would be correct. I think that would make a very unique tattoo. Good luck!
