Psalms 53

Rotherham(i) 1 To the Chief Musician. On Mahalath. A Psalm of Instruction, of David. 2 God, out of the heavens, looked down upon the sons of men,—To see whether there was one that showed wisdom, Enquiring after God. 3 They all, have turned back, together have they become tainted,—There is none that doeth good, Not so much as, one! 4 Are the workers of iniquity, without knowledge? Devouring my people, [as] they devour food? Upon God, have they not called. 5 There have they been in great dread where no dread was, Because, God, hath scattered the bones of thy besieger,—Thou hast put [him] to shame, Because, God, had, rejected, them. 6 Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvations of Israel! When God bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, shall be glad.
