Psalm 53 Revised Standard Version

The Folly and Wickedness of Men

53 1  To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David. The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity; there is none that does good. 2  God looks down from heaven upon the sons of men to see if there are any that are wise, that seek after God. 3  They have all fallen away; they are all alike depraved; there is none that does good, no, not one. 4  Have those who work evil no understanding, who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call upon God? 5  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. 6  O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion! When God restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice and Israel be glad.
