David describeth the corruption of a natural man.
Psalms 53:1 Unto the end, for Maeleth, understandings to David. The fool said in his heart: There is no God. They are corrupted, and become abominable in iniquities: there is none that doth good. Psalms 53:2 God looked down from heaven on the children of men: to see if there were any that did understand, or did seek God. Psalms 53:3 All have gone aside, they are become unprofitable together, there is none that doth good, no not one.
He convinceth the wicked by the light of their own conscience.
Psalms 53:4 Shall not all the workers of iniquity know, who eat up my people as they eat bread? Psalms 53:5 They have not called upon God: there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear. For God hath scattered the bones of them that please men: they have been confounded, because God hath despised them.
He glorieth in the salvation of God.
Psalms 53:6 Who will give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? when God shall bring back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
