1 The fool says in his heart: »There is no God Jehovah (Psalm 10:4).« They are corrupt. They do disgusting things. No one does good things.
2 Jehovah looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there is anyone who acts wisely, if there is anyone who seeks help from God.
3 Everyone has turned away. Together they have become rotten to the core. No one, not even one person, does good things.
4 Are all the workers of wickedness, those who devour my people as if they were devouring food, so ignorant that they do not call on Jehovah?
5 They were in great fear and panic because God is with the righteous person.
6 They put the advice of oppressed people to shame because Jehovah is their protection.
7 If only salvation for Israel would come from Zion! When Jehovah restores his captive people, Jacob will rejoice. Israel will be glad.
