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.
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.
Everyone has turned away. Together they have become rotten to the core. No one, not even one person, does good things.
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?
There they are--panic-stricken because God is with the person who is righteous.
They put the advice of oppressed people to shame because the LORD is their refuge.
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.
