|Psalms 53 |
1 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none who does good.
2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any who understood, who sought God.
3 Every one of them has gone back and turned away; they have become altogether filthy; there is none who does good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? They, who eat up my people as they eat bread; they do not call upon God.
5 There were those in great fear [particular ones], where no fear [generally] 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 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.
