Psalms 53 - NIV

[a]For the director of music. According to mahalath.Title: Probably a musical term A maskilTitle: Probably a literary or musical term of David.

1

The fool says in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
there is no one who does good.

2

God looks down from heaven
on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
any who seek God.

3 Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
not even one.

4

Do all these evildoers know nothing?
They devour my people as though eating bread;
they never call on God.

5 But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
you put them to shame, for God despised them.

6

Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores his people,
let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
