Psalm 53 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

(A special psalm by David for the music leader. To the tune ‚ÄúMahalath.‚ÄĚ)

No One Can Ignore God

53 Only a fool would say,
¬†¬†¬†¬†‚ÄúThere is no God!‚ÄĚ
People like that are worthless!
    They are heartless and cruel
    and never do right.

2 From heaven God
    looks down to see
    if anyone is wise enough
    to search for him.
3 But all of them
are crooked and corrupt.
    Not one of them does right.

4 Won’t you lawbreakers learn?
    You refuse to pray,
    and you gobble down
    the people of God.
5 But you will be terrified
    worse than ever before.
God will scatter the bones
    of his enemies,
    and you will be ashamed
    when God rejects you.

6 I long for someone from Zion
    to come and save Israel!
Our God, when you bless
    your people again,
    Jacob’s family will be glad,
    and Israel will celebrate.

Psalms 53.6
