Psalms 53

For the choir director: A meditation; a psalm [1]  of David.
 1  Only fools say in their hearts,
  "There is no God."
They are corrupt, and their actions are evil;
  not one of them does good!

 2  God looks down from heaven
  on the entire human race;
he looks to see if anyone is truly wise,
  if anyone seeks God.
 3  But no, all have turned away;
  all have become corrupt. [3] 
No one does good,
  not a single one!

 4  Will those who do evil never learn?
  They eat up my people like bread
  and wouldn't think of praying to God.
 5  Terror will grip them,
  terror like they have never known before.
God will scatter the bones of your enemies.
  You will put them to shame, for God has rejected them.

 6  Who will come from Mount Zion to rescue Israel?
  When God restores his people,
  Jacob will shout with joy, and Israel will rejoice.
