1 The fool says in his heart, ¶ "There is no God." ¶ They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; ¶ there is no one who does good.
2 God looks down from heaven ¶ on all mankind ¶ to see if there are any who understand, ¶ any who seek God.
3 Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, ¶ not even one.
4 Do all these evildoers know nothing? ¶ They devour my people as though eating bread; ¶ they never call on God.
5 But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, where there was nothing to dread. ¶ God scattered the bones of those who attacked you; ¶ you put them to shame, for God despised them.
6 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! ¶ When God restores his people, ¶ let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
