¶ THE fool has said in his heart, There is no God.
They are corrupt, they have been defiled by their own devices;
there is none that does good.
The LORD looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any that did understand and seek God.
They are all gone astray and have been rejected all together;
there is none that does good;
no, not one.
They recognized not the workers of iniquity, who devour my people as one eats bread;
and they called not upon the LORD.
There were they in great fear;
for God is in the generation of the righteous.
They have reproached the counsel of the poor, because he trusts on the LORD.
Who shall give out of Zion the salvation to Israel?
When the LORD brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.
