Psalm 53
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

There Is No One Who Does Good

For the choir director. According to [†]Mahalath. A [†]Maskil of David.

1The wicked fool says in his heart, “There is no God,”

They act corruptly, and commit abominable injustice;

There is no one who does good.

2God looks down from heaven upon the sons of men

To see if there is anyone who has insight,

Anyone who seeks after God.

3Every one of them has turned back; together they have become [†]worthless;

There is no one who does good, not even one.

4Do the workers of iniquity not know,

Who eat up my people as they eat bread

And do not call upon God?

5There they were in great dread where no dread had been;

For God scattered the bones of [†]him who encamped against you;

You put them to shame, because God had rejected them.

6Oh, that the salvation of Israel [†]would come out of Zion!

When God [†]restores His captive people,

[†]May Jacob rejoice, may Israel be glad.
