For the Chief Musician. By David.
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 Yahweh 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 Yahweh?
5 There they were in great fear,
For God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 You frustrate the plan of the poor,
Because Yahweh is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When Yahweh restores the fortunes of his people,
Then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
