Psalms 53:2-3


53:2 God looks down from heaven 1  at the human race, 2 

to see if there is anyone who is wise 3  and seeks God. 4 

53:3 Everyone rejects God; 5 

they are all morally corrupt. 6 

None of them does what is right, 7 

not even one!

1 sn The picture of the Lord looking down from heaven draws attention to his sovereignty over the world.

2 tn Heb “upon the sons of man.”

3 tn Or “acts wisely.” The Hiphil is exhibitive.

4 tn That is, who seeks to have a relationship with God by obeying and worshiping him.

5 tn Heb “all of it turns away.” Ps 14:1 has הָכֹּל (hakkol) instead of כֻּלּוֹ, and סָר (sar, “turn aside”) instead of סָג (sag, “turn away”).

6 tn Heb “together they are corrupt.”

7 tn Heb “there is none that does good.”
