|[To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.]||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.
|God looks down from heaven upon the sons of men |
to see if there are any that are wise, that seek after God.
|They have all fallen away; they are all alike depraved; |
there is none that does good, no, not one.
|Have those who work evil no understanding, |
who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon God?
|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.
|O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion! |
When God restores the fortunes of his people,
Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.
