1 <> 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.
2 The LORD looked down from heaven on the children of men, To see if there were any who did understand, Who did seek after God.
3 They have all gone aside; they have together become corrupt. There is none who does good, no, not one.
4 Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And don't call on the LORD?
5 There were they in great fear, For God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 You put to shame the counsel of the poor, Because the LORD is his refuge.
7 Oh that the yeshu`ah of Yisra'el would come out of Tziyon! When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people, Then Ya`akov shall rejoice, and Yisra'el shall be glad.
