The fool has said in his heart There is no God :
they have all become vile and abominable in their doings,
there is not one that does good.
The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men :
to see if there were any who would act wisely and seek after God.
But they have all turned out of the way,
they have all alike become corrupt :
there is none that does good, no not one.
Are all the evildoers devoid of understanding :
who eat up my people as men eat bread,
and do not pray to the Lord?
They shall be struck with terror :
for God is with the company of the righteous.
Though they frustrate the poor man in his hopes :
surely the Lord is his refuge.
O that deliverance for Israel might come forth from Zion :
when the Lord turns again the fortunes of his people,
then shall Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
