Psalms Chapter 53

1 For the Leader; upon Mahalath. Maschil of David.
2 The fool hath said in his heart: 'There is no God'; {N}
they have dealt corruptly, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none that doeth good.
3 God looked forth from heaven upon the children of men, {N}
to see if there were any man of understanding, that did seek after God.
4 Every one of them is unclean, they are together become impure; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
5 'Shall not the workers of iniquity know it, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and call not upon God?'
6 There are they in great fear, where no fear was; {N}
for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee; Thou hast put them to shame, because God hath rejected them.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! {N}
When God turneth the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. {P}
