1 The fool hath
said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have
done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.
2 God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see
if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
3 Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become
filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people
as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
5 There were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God
hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee:
thou hast put them to shame, because God hath despised them.
6 Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When
God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice,
and Israel shall be glad.
