Psalm 53:1-6

(Of the Director; to “Mahalath”; meditative, of David’s.) 53  A rascal has said to himself “There is no God.” They behave viciously, abominably; there is nobody that does what is good. 2  God looked from the heavens upon mankind to see if there was a canny man, one that looked to God: 3  The whole lot had drawn off together, had degenerated, there was nobody that did what was good, not a single one. 4  Do all who perpetrate villainy not know? those who eat up my people eat bread, never call on God,— 5***  There they are seized with terror, because God breaks up an ungodly man’s plan; You shall put them to shame, because God has repudiated them. 6*  O for Israel’s salvation coming from Sion! When God comes back to his people Jacob will jubilate, Israel make merry.
