Salmos 53

Al director musical. Según majalat. Masquil de David.

1Dice el necio en su corazón:
    «No hay Dios».
Están corrompidos, sus obras son detestables;
    ¡no hay uno solo que haga lo bueno!

Desde el cielo Dios contempla a los mortales,
    para ver si hay alguien
    que sea sensato y busque a Dios.
Pero todos se han descarriado,
    a una se han corrompido.
No hay nadie que haga lo bueno;
    ¡no hay uno solo!

¿Acaso no entienden todos los que hacen lo malo,
    los que devoran a mi pueblo como si fuera pan?
    ¡Jamás invocan a Dios!
Allí los tienen, sobrecogidos de miedo,
    cuando no hay nada que temer.
Dios dispersó los huesos de quienes te atacaban;
    tú los avergonzaste, porque Dios los rechazó.

¡Quiera Dios que de Sión
    venga la salvación para Israel!
Cuando Dios restaure a su pueblo,[a]
    se regocijará Jacob; se alegrará todo Israel.

Notas al pie

  1. 53:6 restaure a su pueblo. Alt. haga que su pueblo vuelva del cautiverio.

Psalm 53

Psalm 53

For the director of music. According to mahalath. A maskil of David.

Foolish people say in their hearts,
    “There is no God.”
They do all kinds of horrible and evil things.
    No one does anything good.

God looks down from heaven
    on all people.
He wants to see if there are any who understand.
    He wants to see if there are any who trust in God.
All of them have turned away.
    They have all become evil.
No one does anything good,
    no one at all.

Don’t these people who do evil know anything?
    They eat up my people as if they were eating bread.
    They never call out to God for help.
Just look at them! They are filled with terror
    even when there is nothing to be afraid of!
People of Israel, God scattered the bones of those who attacked you.
    You put them to shame, because God hated them.

How I pray that the God who saves Israel will come out of Zion!
    God will bless his people with great success again.
    Then let the people of Jacob be filled with joy! Let Israel be glad!
