To the choirmaster: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.
q The fool says in his heart, "There is no God."
They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity;
there is none who does good.
God looks down from heaven
on the children of man
to see if there are any who understand,
who seek after God.
They have all fallen away;
together they have become corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
Have those who work evil no knowledge,
who eat up my people as they eat bread,
and do not call upon God?
There they are, in great terror,
r where there is no terror!
For God s scatters the bones of him who encamps against you;
you put them to shame, for God has rejected them.
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When God restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.

O Lord, God of my salvation; I cry out day and night before you.
Psalms 53:1 - 6
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, doing abominable iniquity; there is none who does good.
Psalms 14:1 - 7
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they do abominable deeds, there is none who does good.
I will set my face against you, and you shall be struck down before your enemies. Those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when none pursues you.
And as for those of you who are left, I will send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies. The sound of a driven leaf shall put them to flight, and they shall flee as one flees from the sword, and they shall fall when none pursues.
The wicked flee when no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.
You crushed Rahab like a carcass; you scattered your enemies with your mighty arm.
As when one plows and breaks up the earth, so shall our bones be scattered at the mouth of Sheol.
Jeremiah 8:1 - 2
At that time, declares the Lord, the bones of the kings of Judah, the bones of its officials, the bones of the priests, the bones of the prophets, and the bones of the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be brought out of their tombs.
And I will lay the dead bodies of the people of Israel before their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars.
