Psalm 53

To the chief Musician upon *Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David.

aThe fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity:

bThere is none that doeth good.

God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,

To see if there were bany that did understand, that did seek God.

bEvery one of them is cgone back: they are altogether become filthy;

There is none that doeth good, no, not one.

Have dthe workers of iniquity no knowledge?

Who eat up my people as they eat bread:

They have not called upon God.

There were they in great fear, ewhere no fear was:

fFor God hath ghscattered hthe bones of him that encampeth against thee:

Thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.

Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!

When God bringeth back the captivity of his people,

Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
