1 Fools say to themselves, "There is no God." Fools are evil and do terrible things; none of them does anything good.
2 God looked down from heaven on all people to see if anyone was wise, if anyone was looking to God for help.
3 But all have turned away. Together, everyone has become evil; none of them does anything good. Not a single person.
4 Don't the wicked understand? They destroy my people as if they were eating bread. They do not ask God for help.
5 The wicked are filled with terror where there had been nothing to fear. God will scatter the bones of your enemies. You will defeat them, because God has rejected them.
6 I pray that victory will come to Israel from Mount Zion! May God bring them back. Then the people of Jacob will rejoice, and the people of Israel will be glad.
