Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the Overseer. -- By David. A fool hath said in his heart, `God is not;' They have done corruptly, They have done abominable actions, There is not a doer of 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 Jehovah from the heavens Hath looked on the sons of men, To see if there is a wise one -- seeking 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 The whole have turned aside, Together they have been filthy: There is not a doer of good, not even one. 3 All have turned aside, they have together become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Have all working iniquity not known? Those consuming my people have eaten bread, Jehovah they have not called. 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 have feared a fear, For God [is] in the generation of the righteous. 5 There they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.
6 The counsel of the poor ye cause to stink, Because Jehovah [is] his refuge. 6 You evildoers frustrate the plans of the poor, but the LORD is their refuge.
7 `Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When Jehovah doth turn back [To] a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoice -- Israel is 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!
