- ¶ THE fool has said in his heart, There is no God.
Corrupt are they, and abominable in their iniquities;
and there is none that does good.
- God looked down from heaven upon the children of men to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
- Every one of them has gone astray;
they are altogether become filthy;
there is none that does good, no, not one.
- These people no longer recognize evil;
they have consumed my people like bread;
they have no respect for God.
- There they feared where no fear was;
for God has scattered the bones of hypocrites;
they have been ashamed, because God has despised them.
- Who out of Zion will give salvation to Israel?
When God brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice and Israel shall be glad.
