Psalm 53

For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David.

1 The fool says in his heart,
   ‘There is no God.’
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile;
   there is no one who does good.
2 God looks down from heaven
   on all mankind
to see if there are any who understand,
   any who seek God.
3 Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt;
there is no one who does good,
   not even one.
4 Do all these evildoers know nothing?
They devour my people as though eating bread;
   they never call on God.
5 But there they are, overwhelmed with dread,
   where there was nothing to dread.
God scattered the bones of those who attacked you;
   you put them to shame, for God despised them.
6 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
   When God restores his people,
   let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!

LORD I don't need to be overwhelmed with dread today for you are on my side and have already dealt with my unrighteousness. Amen.
