1 For the Chief Musician. By David.The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God."They are corrupt.They have done abominable works.There is none who does good.

2 The Lord looked down from heaven on the children of men,to see if there were any who did understand,who did seek after God.

3 They have all gone aside.They have together become corrupt.There is none who does good, no, not one.

4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,who eat up my people as they eat bread,and do not call on the Lord?

5 There they were in great fear,for God is in the generation of the righteous.

6 You would frustrate the plans of the lowly,but the Lord is his refuge.

7 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!When the Lord restores the fortunes of his people,then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
