Psalms 53


Psalm 53


There Is None Who Does Good

To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.

[1] The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
there is none who does good.


[2] God looks down from heaven
on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.


[3] They have all fallen away;
together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.


[4] Have those who work evil no knowledge,
who eat up my people as they eat bread,
and do not call upon God?


[5] There they are, in great terror,
where there is no terror!
For God scatters the bones of him who encamps against you;
you put them to shame, for God has rejected them.


[6] Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad. (ESV)
