1 To the overseer upon the stringed instrument: instruction to David. The fool said in his heart, No God. They were corrupted; they made iniquity abominable: none doing good. 2 God from the heavens looked forth upon the sons of man to see if there is he understanding, seeking God. 3 They all drew back: together they were corrupt; none doing good, not even one.
4 Did not those transgressing know any thing? eating up my people, they ate bread: they called not upon God. 5 They feared a fear; there was no fear: for God scattered the bones of him making narrow: thou didst make ashamed, for God rejected them.
6 Who will give from Zion the salvation of Israel? In God turning back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
