53:1 To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, [A Psalm] of
David. The fool hath said in his heart, [There is] no God. They
are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity: [there is] none
that doeth good.
53:2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to
see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God.
53:3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become
filthy; [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
53:4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my
people [as] they eat bread! they have not called upon God.
53:5 There they were in great fear, [where] no fear was: for God
hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth [against] thee:
thou hast put [them] to shame, because God hath despised them.
53:6 O that the salvation of Israel [were come] out of Zion!
when God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall
rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.
