Whose minhag is S. Y. Agnon describing in the Shabbat lunch scene in "The Kerchief"?
In S. Y. Agnon's short story "The Kerchief", we're treated to this snippet of the narrator's Shabbat lunch traditions:

> Father entered, said, "A Sabbath of peace and blessing," put his tallit on the bed, sat down at the head of the table, said "The Lord is my shepard, I shall not want," blessed the wine, tasted the cake, and began, "A Psalm of David: The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof."  
<sub>"The Kerchief", part 9 (translated by I. M. Last)</sub>

The two chapters of Tehillim (Psalms) mentioned here are Tehillim 23 and Tehillim 24.

Now, my minhag is to sing "Hashem roi lo echsar" (Tehillim 23) at Se'udat Shlishit (the third meal). I'm not familiar with whose minhag it might be to say these two tehillim at Shabbat lunch; what tradition is Agnon describing here?
