Psalm 53

Folly of the Godless, and the Restoration of Israel

To the Chief Musician. Set to “Mahalath.” A 1Contemplation of David.

1 The afool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”

They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity;

bThere is none who does good.

2 God looks down from heaven upon the children of men,

To see if there are any who understand, who cseek God.

3 Every one of them has turned aside;

They have together become corrupt;

There is none who does good,

No, not one.

4 Have the workers of iniquity dno knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And do not call upon God?

5 eThere they are in great fear

Where no fear was,

For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you;

You have put them to shame,

Because God has despised them.

6 fOh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!

When God brings back 2the captivity of His people,

Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
