53:1 For the Leader; upon Mahalath. Maschil of David.

53:2 The fool hath said in his heart: 'There is no God'; they have dealt corruptly, and have done abominable iniquity; there is none that doeth good.

53:3 God looked forth from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any man of understanding, that did seek after God.

53:4 Every one of them is unclean, they are together become impure; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

53:5 'Shall not the workers of iniquity know it, who eat up My people as they eat bread, and call not upon God?'

53:6 There are they in great fear, where no fear was; for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee; Thou hast put them to shame, because God hath rejected them.

53:7 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God turneth the captivity of His people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
