Psalm 53

Denunciation of Godlessness

To the leader: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.

1

Fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.”

They are corrupt, they commit abominable acts;

there is no one who does good.

 

2

God looks down from heaven on humankind

to see if there are any who are wise,

who seek after God.

 

3

They have all fallen away, they are all alike perverse;

there is no one who does good,

no, not one.

 

4

Have they no knowledge, those evildoers,

who eat up my people as they eat bread,

and do not call upon God?

 

5

There they shall be in great terror,

in terror such as has not been.

For God will scatter the bones of the ungodly;

they will be put to shame, for God has rejected them.

 

6

O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion!

When God restores the fortunes of his people,

Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.
