1 The fool has asaid in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, they have committed abominable deeds; There is bno one who does good. 2 The Lord has alooked down from heaven upon the sons of men To see if there are any who bunderstand, Who cseek after God. 3 They have all aturned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is bno one who does good, not even one. 4 Do all the workers of wickedness anot know, Who beat up my people as they eat bread, And cdo not call upon the Lord? 5 There they are in great dread, For God is with the arighteous generation. 6 You would put to shame the counsel of the afflicted, But the Lord is his arefuge. 7 Oh, that athe salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lord brestores His captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.
