Psalms 53


Psalms 53:1-6 . of the fourteenth Psalm is given we do not know.

1-4. with few verbal changes, correspond with Psalms 14:1-4 .

5. Instead of assurances of God's presence with the pious, and a complaint of the wicked, Psalms 14:5 Psalms 14:6 portrays the ruin of the latter, whose "bones" even "are scattered" (compare Psalms 141:7 ), and who are put to shame as contemptuously rejected of God.
