Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 53

To the chief musician upon Mahalath, Maschil. a psalm of David.

1 The fool in’s heart saith, there’s no God;

they are corrupt, have done

abominable practices;

that doth good there is none.

2 The Lord from heaven looked down

on sons of men, to see

if any that doth understand,

that seeketh God there be.

3 All are gone back, together they

ev’n filthy are become:

and there is none that doeth good,

no not so much as one.

4 The workers of iniquities

have they no knowledge all?

who eat my people: they eat bread;

and on God do not call.

5 Greatly they fear’d, where no fear was,

‘gainst thee in camp that lies

his bones God scattered; and them sham’d

for God doth them despise.

6 Who Israel’s health from Sion gives?

his folks captivity

when God shall turn: Jacob shall joy

glad Israel shall be.
