53 Revised Standard Version BHS Hebrew Text Reference
[To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.] לַמְנַצֵּחַ עַל־מָחֲלַת מַשְׂכִּיל לְדָוִד׃ Wickedness of Men. Psalm 53(v52)
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."
They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
there is none that does good.
אָמַר נָבָל בְּלִבֹּו אֵין אֱלֹהִים
הִשְׁחִיתוּ וְהִתְעִיבוּ עָוֶל אֵין עֹשֵׂה־טֹוב׃
 
God looks down from heaven upon the sons of men
to see if there are any that are wise, that seek after God.
אֱלֹהִים מִשָּׁמַיִם הִשְׁקִיף עַל־בְּנֵי אָדָם
לִרְאֹות הֲיֵשׁ מַשְׂכִּיל דֹּרֵשׁ אֶת־אֱלֹהִים׃
 
They have all fallen away; they are all alike depraved;
there is none that does good, no, not one.
כֻּלֹּו סָג יַחְדָּו נֶאֱלָחוּ אֵין עֹשֵׂה־טֹוב
אֵין גַּם־אֶחָד׃
 
Have those who work evil no understanding,
who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon God?
הֲלֹא יָדְעוּ פֹּעֲלֵי אָוֶן אֹכְלֵי עַמִּי אָכְלוּ לֶחֶם אֱלֹהִים לֹא קָרָאוּ׃  
There they are, 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.
שָׁם פָּחֲדוּ־פַחַד לֹא־הָיָה פָחַד כִּי־אֱלֹהִים פִּזַּר עַצְמֹות חֹנָךְ
הֱבִשֹׁתָה כִּי־אֱלֹהִים מְאָסָם׃
 
O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion!
When God restores the fortunes of his people,
Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.
מִי יִתֵּן מִצִּיֹּון יְשֻׁעֹות יִשְׂרָאֵל בְּשׁוּב אֱלֹהִים שְׁבוּת עַמֹּו
יָגֵל יַעֲקֹב יִשְׂמַח יִשְׂרָאֵל׃
 
      << | Psalms: 53 | >>
