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 deeds.
There is no one who does good.
2 The LORD looked down from heaven on the children of men,
to see if there were any who understood,
who sought after God.
3 They have all gone aside.
They have together become corrupt.
There is no one 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 they were in great fear,
for God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 You frustrate the plan of the poor,
because the LORD is his refuge.
7 Oh that the salvation [yeshuat] of Israel would come out of Zion!
When the LORD restores the fortunes of his people,
then Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
