Psalmus 52 (53)
Language: Latin 
1 [In finem, pro Maëleth intelligentiæ David.]
  Dixit insipiens in corde suo: Non est Deus.
2 Corrupti sunt, et abominabiles facti sunt in iniquitatibus;
  non est qui faciat bonum.
3 Deus de cælo prospexit super filios hominum,
  ut videat si est intelligens, aut requirens Deum.
4 Omnes declinaverunt; simul inutiles facti sunt:
  non est qui faciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.
5 Nonne scient omnes qui operantur iniquitatem,
  qui devorant plebem meam ut cibum panis?
6 Deum non invocaverunt;
  illic trepidaverunt timore, ubi non erat timor.
  Quoniam Deus dissipavit ossa eorum qui hominibus placent:
  confusi sunt, quoniam Deus sprevit eos.
7 Quis dabit ex Sion salutare Israël?
  cum converterit Deus captivitatem plebis suæ,
  exsultabit Jacob, et lætabitur Israël.]

Psalm 52 (53)
Language: English  after the Latin 
1 [Unto the end, for Maeleth, understandings to David.]
  The fool said in his heart: There is no God.
2 They are corrupted, and become abominable in iniquities: 
  there is none that doth good.
3 God looked down from heaven on the children of men: 
  to see if there were any that did understand, or did seek God.
4 All have gone aside, they are become unprofitable together,
  there is none that doth good, no not one.
5 Shall not all the workers of iniquity know,
  who eat up my people as they eat bread?
6 They have not called upon God:
  there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear. 
  For God hath scattered the bones of them that please men: 
  they have been confounded, because God hath despised them.
7 Who will give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? 
  when God shall bring back the captivity of his people, 
  Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
