The Hebrew word for "still" in Psalm 23 is menuha.  Read the following quote by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel:

To the biblical mind  menuha is the same as happiness and stillness, as peace and harmony. . .  It is the state in which there is no strife and no fighting, no fear and no distrust.  The essence of the good life is menuha. . . . In later time menuha became a synonym for the life in the world to come, for eternal life.
