Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (13-1) <Unto the end, a psalm for David.> The fool hath said in his heart: There is no God. They are corrupt, and are become abominable in their ways: there is none that doth good, no not one. 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 (13-2) The Lord hath looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there be any that understand and 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 (13-3) They are all gone aside, they are become unprofitable together: there is none that doth good: no not one. Their throat is an open sepulchre; with their tongues they acted deceitfully: the poison of asps is under their lips. Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness; their feet are swift to shed blood. Destruction and unhappiness in their ways; and the way of peace they have not known: there is no fear of God before their eyes. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 (13-4) Shall not all they know that work iniquity, who devour my people as they eat bread? 4 Will evildoers never learn-- those who devour my people as men eat bread and who do not call on the LORD?
5 (13-5) They have not called upon the Lord: there have they trembled for fear, where there was no fear. 5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 (13-6) For the Lord is in the just generation: you have confounded the counsel of the poor man; but the Lord is his hope. 6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 (13-7) Who shall give out of Sion the salvation of Israel? when the Lord shall have turned away the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall 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!
