Psalm 53

Psalm 53 is the 53rd psalm from the Book of Psalms. It was written by David. Nearly identical to Psalm 14, which prophetically refers to the destruction of the First Temple, this one refers to the destruction of the second.[1] Like Psalm 14, it is quoted in Paul the Apostle's Epistle to the Romans, where Paul uses portions as a base to discuss original sin.
