Psalms 53


 

The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God."

David describes the corruption of the natural man

1 [53:2] The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good. 2 [53:3] God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God. 3 [53:4] Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

He convinces the wicked by the light of their own conscience

4 [53:5] Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God. 5 [53:6] There were 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 despised them.

He glories in the salvation of God

6 [53:7] Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
