Psalm 53 The Folly of the Godless

Psalm 53

The Folly of the Godless

 

1 The fool says in his heart,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;

   there is none that does good.

Psalm 53 The Folly of the Godless

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.

– Psalm 53
