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.
