Psalms 53

Folly and Wickedness of Men.

For the choir director; according to
I.e. sickness, a sad tone
Mahalath. A
Possibly Contemplative, or Didactic, or Skillful Psalm
Maskil of David.

1 c  The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,”
They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice;
d  There is no one who does good.
2God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men
To see if there is e  anyone who
Or acts wisely
Who g  seeks after God.
3 h  Every one of them has turned aside; together they have become corrupt;
There is no one who does good, not even one.

4Have the workers of wickedness i  no knowledge,
Who eat up My people as though they ate bread
And have not called upon God?
5There they were in great
Or dread
fear k  where no
Or dread
fear had been;
For God m  scattered the bones of
Or possibly those
him who encamped against you;
You o  put them to shame, because p  God had rejected them.
6Oh, that q  the salvation of Israel
Lit would be
would come out of Zion!
When God
Or restores the fortunes of His people
restores His captive people,
Or Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad
Let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
