Psalm 53
Young's Literal Translation

The Fool Says, There is No God

1To the Overseer. — ‘On a disease.’ — An instruction, by David. A fool said in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They have done corruptly, Yea, they have done abominable iniquity, There is none doing good.

2God from the heavens looked on the sons of men, To see if there be an understanding one, [One] seeking God.

3Every one went back, together they became filthy, There is none doing good — not even one.

4Have not workers of iniquity known, Those eating my people have eaten bread, God they have not called.

5There they feared a fear — there was no fear, For God hath scattered the bones of him Who is encamping against thee, Thou hast put to shame, For God hath despised them.

6Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When God turneth back [to] a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoice — Israel is glad!
