GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 Godless fools say in their hearts, "There is no God." They are corrupt. They do disgusting things. There is no one who does good things. 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 Adam's descendants to see if there is anyone who acts wisely, if there is anyone who seeks help from 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 Everyone has turned away. Together they have become rotten to the core. No one, not even one person, does good things. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Are all those troublemakers, those who devour my people as if they were devouring food, so ignorant that they do not call 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 There they are--panic-stricken because God is with the person who is righteous. 5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 They put the advice of oppressed people to shame because the LORD is their refuge. 6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 If only salvation for Israel would come from Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice. Israel 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!
