David describeth the corruption of a natural man.
Psalms 53:1 To the Overseer.'On a disease.'An instruction, by David. A fool said in his heart, 'There is no God.' They have done corruptly, Yea, they have done abominable iniquity, There is none doing good. Psalms 53:2 God from the heavens looked on the sons of men, To see if there be an understanding one, [One] seeking God. Psalms 53:3 Every one went back, together they became filthy, There is none doing goodnot even one.
He convinceth the wicked by the light of their own conscience.
Psalms 53:4 Have not workers of iniquity known, Those eating my people have eaten bread, God they have not called. Psalms 53:5 There they feared a fearthere was no fear, For God hath scattered the bones of him Who is encamping against thee, Thou hast put to shame, For God hath despised them.
He glorieth in the salvation of God.
Psalms 53:6 Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When God turneth back [to] a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoiceIsrael is glad!
