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.
