The second book of Psalms, song 53, Vulgate and King James Version

Psalm 53


   1 Magistro chori. Secundum "Mahalat". Maskil. David. Dixit insipiens in corde suo: "Non est Deus".
   2 Corrupti sunt et abominationes operati sunt; non est qui faciat bonum.
   3 Deus de caelo prospexit super filios hominum, ut videat si est intellegens, aut requirens Deum.
   4 Omnes declinaverunt, simul corrupti sunt; non est qui faciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
   5 Nonne scient omnes, qui operantur iniquitatem, qui devorant plebem meam ut cibum panis? Deum non invocaverunt;
   6 illic trepidaverunt timore, et non erat timor. Quoniam Deus dissipavit ossa eorum, qui te obsidebant, confusi sunt, quoniam Deus sprevit eos. -
   7 Quis dabit ex Sion salutare Israel? Cum converterit Deus captivitatem plebis suae, exsultabit Iacob, et laetabitur Israel.

King James Version

   To the chief Musician upon Mahalath, Maschil, A Psalm of David.
   1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
   2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
   3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
   4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
   5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.
   6 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
