The Folly and Wickedness of Men
53 1 To the Overseer.—'On a disease.'—An instruction, by David. A fool said in his heart, 'There is no God.' They have done corruptly, Yea, they have done abominable iniquity, There is none doing good. 2 God from the heavens looked on the sons of men, To see if there be an understanding one, 'One' seeking God. 3 Every one went back, together they became filthy, There is none doing good—not even one. 4 Have not workers of iniquity known, Those eating my people have eaten bread, God they have not called. 5 There they feared a fear—there was no fear, For God hath scattered the bones of him Who is encamping against thee, Thou hast put to shame, For God hath despised them. 6 Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When God turneth back 'to' a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoice—Israel is glad!
