1 <<To the Overcomer upon Mahalath, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David.>> The fool has said in his heart, [There is] no God. They have corrupted themselves and have done abominable iniquity; [there is] no one that does good.
2 God looked down from heaven upon the sons of Adam to see if there were [any] that did understand, that did seek God.
3 Every one of them is gone back; they are altogether become filthy; [there is] no one that does good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people [as] they eat bread; they have not called upon God.
5 They were there in great fear [where] no fear was; for God has scattered the bones of him that encamps [against] thee: thou hast put [them] to shame because God has despised them.
6 Oh that the saving health of Israel [were come] out of Zion! When God brings back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, [and] Israel shall be glad.:
