Psalms 53

Matthew(i) 1 To the chaunter vpon Mahalath, an instruccyon of Dauid. The folysh bodyes saye in their hertes: Tush, there is no God. Corrupte are they & become abhomynable in their wyckednesse: there is not one, that doth good. 2 God loked downe from heauen vpon the chyldren of men, to se if there were any that would vnderstand, or seke after God. 3 But they are all gone out of the waye they are al become vnprofitable: ther is none that doth good, no not one. 4 How can they haue vnderstandynge, that are the worckers of wyckednes, eatynge vp my people as it were breade, and call not vpon God? 5 They are afrayed, where no feare is: for God breaketh the bones of them that beseige the: thou puttest them to confusion, for God despiseth them. 6 Oh that the sauynge healthe were geuen vnto Israel out of Sion: Oh that the Lorde woulde delyuer his people out of captiuity. Then shoulde Iacob reioyse, and Israell should be ryght glad.
