New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. The fool has said in his heart, "There is no God." They are corrupt, They have done abominable works, There is none who does 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 upon the children of men, To see if there are any who understand, who seek 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 They have all turned aside, They have together become corrupt; There is none who does good, No, not one. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And 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 in great fear, For God is with the generation of the righteous. 5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 You shame the counsel of the poor, But the Lord is his refuge. 6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lord brings back the captivity of His people, Let Jacob rejoice and Israel 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!
