Psalms 53
ICB
53
The Unbelieving Fool
For the director of music. By mahalath. A maskil of David.
1A wicked fool says to himself,
“There is no God.”
Fools are evil. They do terrible things.
None of them does anything good.
2God looked down from heaven at all the people.
He looked to see if anyone was wise,
if anyone was looking to God for help.
3But everyone has turned away.
Together, everyone has become evil.
None of them does anything good.
4Don’t the wicked understand?
They destroy my people as if they were eating bread.
They have not asked God for help.
5The wicked became filled with terror
where there had been nothing to be terrified of.
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 give them back their riches.
Then the people of Jacob will rejoice.
And the people of Israel will be glad.
