Sounds familiar

Sometimes, when I read the Bible, I forget that it was written thousands of years ago and not last week. Today David’s words ring as true as ever.

Fools say to themselves, “There is no God.”
Fools are evil and do terrible things;
none of them does anything good.

God looked down from heaven on all people
to see if anyone was wise,
if anyone was looking to God for help.
But all have turned away.
Together, everyone has become evil;
none of them does anything good.
Not a single person.

Don’t the wicked understand?
They destroy my people as if they were eating bread.
They do not ask God for help.
The wicked are filled with terror
where there had been nothing to fear.
God will scatter the bones of your enemies.
You will defeat them,
because God has rejected them.

I pray that victory will come to
Israel from Mount Zion!
May God bring them back.
Then the people of Jacob will rejoice,
and the people of Israel will be glad.

Psalm 53 (NCV)

Daily Bible reading: Psalm 53-55; Acts 27:26-44
