Psalms 53 (asv)

Psalms 53 (asv)

For the Chief Musician; set to Mahalath. Maschil of David.

53:1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.

Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity;

There is none that doeth good.

53:2God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,

To see if there were any that did understand,

That did seek after God.

53:3Every one of them is gone back; they are together become filthy;

There is none that doeth good, no, not one.

53:4Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread,

And call not upon God?

53:5There were they in great fear, where no fear was;

For God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee:

Thou hast put them to shame, because of God hath rejected them.

53:6Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!

When God bringeth back the captivity of his people,

Then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
