The a fool has said in his heart,
"There is no God."
They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity;
b There is none who does good.
God looks down from heaven upon the children of men,
To see if there are any who understand, who c seek God.
Every one of them has turned aside;
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
Have the workers of iniquity d no knowledge,
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And do not call upon God?
e There they are in great fear
Where no fear was,
For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you;
You have put them to shame,
Because God has despised them.
f Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When God brings back 1 the captivity of His people,
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
