Folly of the Godless, and the Restoration of Israel
(Ps. 14:1–7 )

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 53:1 - To the Chief Musician. Set to “Mahalath.” A Contemplation[fn] of David.

The fool has said in his heart,
“There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity;
There is none who does good.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 53:2 - God looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who seek God.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 53:3 - Every one of them has turned aside;
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 53:4 - Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And do not call upon God?

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 53:5 - There they are in great fear
Where no fear was,
For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you;
You have put them to shame,
Because God has despised them.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 53:6 - Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When God brings back the captivity of His people,
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
