1 [To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.] The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt. They have done abominable works. There is no one who does good.
2 The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any who understood and sought God.
3 They have all gone aside. They have all together become filthy. There is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread and do not call upon the LORD?
5 There they were in great fear, for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 You have shamed the counsel of the poor because the LORD is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.
