Psalms - Chapter 53 | New King James Version

  • 1. To the Chief Musician. Set to 'Mahalath.' A Contemplation {cf2super [45]} of David. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity; There is none who does good.
  • 2. God looks down from heaven upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.
  • 3. Every one of them has turned aside; They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one.
  • 4. Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call upon God?
  • 5. There they are in great fear Where no fear was, For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you; You have put them to shame, Because God has despised them.
  • 6. Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of His people, Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
