To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1
The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God.
They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
2
The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3
They are all gone aside, they are all together become filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge?
who eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the LORD.
5
There were they in great fear: for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6
Ye have shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.
7
Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!
when the LORD bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
