For the director of music. Of David. Fools say ·to themselves [L in their hearts], “There is no God [C Psalm 53 largely parallels this psalm].” ·Fools are evil [L They are corrupt] and do ·terrible [detestable] things [Deut. 32:5]; there is no one who does anything good.
1 He describeth the perverse nature of men, which were so grown to licentiousness, that God was brought to utter contempt. 7 For the which thing, although he was greatly grieved, yet being persuaded that God would send some present remedy, he comforteth himself and others.To him that excelleth. A Psalm of David. The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God: they have corrupted, and done an abominable work: there is none that doeth good.

For the worship leader. A song of David. A wicked and foolish man truly believes there is no God. They are vile, their sinfulness nauseating to their Creator; their actions are soiled and repulsive; every deed is depraved; not one of them does good.
To the victory, [the psalm] of David. The unwise man said in his heart, God is not. They be corrupt, and they be made abominable in their studies; none there is that doeth good, none is till to one. (To victory, the song of David. The fool said in his heart, There is no God. Such men be corrupt, and they be made abominable in their deeds; there is no one who doeth good, no not one.)
