Psalms 53

Great(i) 1 To the chaunter vpon Mahalath, an instruccyon of Dauid. The foolysh bodye hath sayed in hys hert: there is no God. Corrupte are they, & become abhomynable in theyr wickednesse: there is none that doth good. 2 God loked downe from heauen vpon the children of men, to se yf there were eny that wolde vnderstande, and seke after God. 3 But they are all gone oute of the waye, they are all together become abhomynable: there is also none that doth good, no not one. 4 Are not they without vnderstandynge that worcke wickednes, eating vp my people as yf they wolde eate bread? they haue not called vpon God. 5 They were afraied, where no feare was: for God hath broken the bones of hym that beseged the: thou hast put them to confusion, because God hath despysed them. 6 Oh that the saluacyon were geuen vnto Israel out of Sion: Oh that the Lorde wold delyuer hys people out of captiuyte. Then shulde Iacob reioyse, and Israell shulde be ryght glad.
