Psalm 53

2 The fool has said in his heart,

 “There is no God.”

 Their deeds are corrupt, depraved;

 no one does any good.

3 God looks down from heaven

 on the human race,

 to see if any are wise,

 if any seek God.

4 All have left the right path,

 depraved, every one;

 there is no one who does any good,

 no, not even one.

5 Do none who do evil understand?

 They eat up my people as if eating bread;

 they never call out to God.

6 There they shall tremble with fear—

 without cause for fear—

 for God scatters the bones of your besiegers.

 They are shamed; God rejects them.

7 Who will bring Israel salvation from Sion?

 When God brings about the return of his people,

 then Jacob will be glad and Israel rejoice.
