Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 For the leader. By David: Fools say in their hearts, "There is no God."They deal corruptly, their deeds are vile, not one does what is right. 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 From heaven ADONAI observes humankind to see if anyone has understanding, 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 turn aside, all alike are corrupt; no one does what is right, not a single one. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Don't they ever learn, all those evildoers, who eat up my people as if eating bread and never call on ADONAI? 4 Will evildoers never learn-- those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on the LORD?
5 There they are, utterly terrified; for God is with those who are righteous. 5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 You may mock the plans of the poor, but their refuge is ADONAI. 6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 How I wish Isra'el's salvation would come out of Tziyon! When ADONAI restores his people's fortunes, Ya'akov will rejoice, Isra'el will be glad! 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!
