1 The impious hath said in his heart, There is no God! They have acted corruptly, They have wrought abominable perversity, There is none that doeth good: - 2 God, out of the heavens, looked down upon the sons of men, - To see whether there was one that showed wisdom, Enquiring after God. 3 They all, have turned back, together have they become tainted, - There is none that doeth good, Not so much as, one!
4 Are the workers of iniquity, without knowledge? Devouring my people, as they devour food? Upon God, have they not called. 5 There have they been in great dread where no dread was, Because, God, hath scattered the bones of thy besieger, - Thou hast put him to shame, Because, God, had, rejected, them.
6 Oh that, out of Zion, were granted the salvations of Israel! When God bringeth back the captives of his people, Jacob, shall exult, Israel, shall be glad.
