The Fool Says There Is No God
(Romans 3:9-20; Psalm 53:1-6)

For the choirmaster. Of David.

The foola says in his heart,

“There is no God.”

They are corrupt; their acts are vile.

There is no one who does good.

2The LORD looks down from heaven

upon the sons of men

to see if any understand,

if any seek God.

3All have turned away,

they have together become corrupt;b

there is no one who does good,

not even one.

4Will the workers of iniquity never learn?

They devour My people like bread;

they refuse to call upon the LORD.

5There they are, overwhelmed with dread,

for God is in the company of the righteous.

6You sinners frustrate the plans of the oppressed,

yet the LORD is their shelter.

7Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come from Zion!

When the LORD restores His captive people,

let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

Footnotes:

1 a The Hebrew words rendered fool throughout the Psalms denote one who is morally deficient
3 b LXX worthless
