(A Psalm of David.)
The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile;
there is no one who does good.
The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who
understand, any who seek God.
All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does
good, not even one.
Will evildoers never learn-- those who devour my people as men eat bread and who
do not call on the LORD ?
There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of
You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the
fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
