{To the chief Musician.
[A Psalm] of David.}
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
They have corrupted themselves, they have done abominable works: there is none that doeth good.
2
Jehovah looked down from the heavens upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
3
They have all gone aside, they are together become corrupt: there is none that doeth good, not even one.
4
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, eating up my people [as] they eat bread?
They call not upon Jehovah.
5
There were they in great fear;
for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6
Ye have shamed the counsel of the afflicted, because Jehovah [was] his refuge.
7
Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!
When Jehovah turneth again the captivity of his people, Jacob shall be glad, Israel shall rejoice.
