1 The fool has said in his heart: »There is no God Jehovah*.« They are corrupt and have done abominable detestable iniquity. There are none who do good. *Possible deliberate scribal change from YHWH to Elohim
2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any who understand and seek God.
3 Every one of them has gone back: they are totally corrupted filthy. None do good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? They eat up my people as they eat bread. They have not called upon God.
5 There they were in great fear, where no fear was: for God has scattered the bones of him that encamps against you. You have put them to shame, because God has despised them.
6 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When Jehovah brings his people back from captivity, Jacob and Israel will rejoice and be glad.
