1 «To the chief Musician, [A Psalm] of David.» 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 downe from heauen vpon the children of men, to see if there were any that would vnderstand, and seeke God.
3 They are all gone aside, they are [all] together become filthy: [there is] none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 Doe not all the workers of iniquitie know that they eate vp my people, as they eate bread? They call not vpon 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.
