Psalms 53

For the end, A Psalm of David upon Mahalath, of instruction.

1 The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They have corrupted themselves, and have become abominable in iniquities; there is none that does good. 2God looked down from heaven upon the sons of men, to see if there were any that understood, or sought after God. 3They have all gone out of the way, they have together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, there is not even one. 4Will none of the workers of iniquity know, who devour My people as they would eat bread? They have not called upon God. There were they greatly afraid, where there was no fear; 5for God has scattered the bones of the men-pleasers; they were ashamed, for God has despised them. 6Who will bring the salvation of Israel out of Zion? When the Lord turns the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
