1The 2fool says in his heart, 3"There is no God." They are 4corrupt, they do abominable deeds, 5there is none who does good.
The LORD 6looks down from heaven on the children of man, to see if there are any who understand, who 7seek after God.
They have all turned aside; together they have become 8corrupt; there is none who does good, not even one.
Have they no 9knowledge, all the evildoers who 10eat up my people as they eat bread and 11do not call upon the LORD?
There they are in great terror, for God is with 12the generation of the righteous.
You would shame the plans of the poor, but the LORD is his 13refuge.
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD 14restores the fortunes of his people, let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
