1 The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt. They have done abominable works. There is none who does good. 2 The LORD looked down from heaven on the children of men, to see if there were any who did understand, who did seek after God. 3 They have all gone aside. They have together become corrupt. There is none who does good, no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, who eat up my people as they eat bread, and do not call on the LORD?
5 There they were in great fear, for God is in the generation of the righteous. 6 You would frustrate the plans of the lowly, but the LORD is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion. When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
