Psalms 53
The Unbelieving Fool
For the director of music. By mahalath. A maskil of David.
1Fools say to themselves,
“There is no God.”
Fools are evil and do terrible things;
none of them does anything good.
2God looked down from heaven on all people
to see if anyone was wise,
if anyone was looking to God for help.
3But all have turned away.
Together, everyone has become evil;
none of them does anything good.
Not a single person.
4Don’t the wicked understand?
They destroy my people as if they were eating bread.
They do not ask God for help.
5The wicked are filled with terror
where there had been nothing to fear.
God will scatter the bones of your enemies.
You will defeat them,
because God has rejected them.
6I pray that victory will come to Israel from Mount Zion!
May God bring them back.
Then the people of Jacob will rejoice,
and the people of Israel will be glad.
