1 The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt; they commit abominable deeds; There is none who does good.
2 Jehovah looked down from heaven Upon the sons of men To see if there was anyone who had insight, Who seeks after God.
3 They have all turned aside; They are together perverse. There is none who does good; There is not even one.
4 Have they no knowledge, all the workers of iniquity, Who eat up my people as they would eat up bread And do not call upon Jehovah?
5 There they were in great fear, For God is among the generation of the righteous.
6 You put the counsel of the afflicted to shame, But Jehovah is their refuge.
7 O that the salvation of Israel might come forth from Zion! When Jehovah turns the captivity of His people, Jacob will exult, Israel will rejoice.
