14 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed abominable [a]deeds; There is no one who does good. 2 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who [b]understand, Who seek after God. 3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Do all the workers of wickedness not know, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, Anddo not call upon the Lord? 5 There they are in great dread, For God is with the righteous generation. 6 You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted, But the Lord is his refuge.
7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel [c]would come out of Zion! When the Lord[d]restores His captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.
For the choir director; according to [a]Mahalath. A [b]Maskil of David.
53 The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God,” They are corrupt, and have committed abominable injustice; There is no one who does good. 2 God has looked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there is anyone who [c]understands, Who seeks after God. 3 Every one of them has turned aside; together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Have the workers of wickedness no knowledge, Who eat up My people as though they ate bread And have not called upon God? 5 There they were in great [d]fear where no [e]fear had been; For God scattered the bones of [f]him who encamped against you; You put them to shame, because God had rejected them. 6 Oh, that the salvation of Israel [g]would come out of Zion! When God [h]restores His captive people, [i]Let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
