Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Fools say in their hearts, There is no God. They are corrupt and do evil things; not one of them does anything good. 1 The fool says in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good.
2 The LORD looks down from heaven on humans to see if anyone is wise, to see if anyone seeks God, 2 The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
3 but all of them have turned bad. Everyone is corrupt. No one does good— not even one person! 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Are they dumb, all these evildoers, devouring my people like they are eating bread but never calling on the LORD? 4 Will evildoers never learn-- those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on the LORD?
5 Count on it: they will be in utter panic because God is with the righteous generation. 5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 You evildoers may humiliate the plans of those who suffer, but the LORD is their refuge. 6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 Let Israel's salvation come out of Zion! When the LORD changes his people's circumstances for the better, Jacob will rejoice; Israel will celebrate! 7 Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad!
