Psalms  ◦   Chapter 53

1Fools comfort themselves by saying,
"There is no God."
They are corrupt with selfishness and do disgusting things;
there is not one who lives in harmony with God’s design of love.

2God looks down from heaven
on the entire human race
to see if there is anyone who understands his design for life —
anyone who seeks a saving relationship with God.

3The entire human race has accepted lies about God and turned away from him.
They have become completely necrotic in character;
there is no one who does good — who loves others, who is selfless and kind —
not even one.

4Will the selfish exploiters of others never learn —
those who suck the life out of others like gluttons devour bread
and who refuse to talk to God?

5One day they will be overwhelmed with terror —
terrified like they have never before known.
God will annihilate the enemies of the righteous;
they will be shamed before you, for God has rejected them.

6I long for the remedy which heals God’s people to come out of heaven!
When God restores his people,
those who prevail with him will be glad!
