1 [A melody] of David.
The foolish one says in his heart: “There is no Jehovah.” Their actions are corrupt, and their dealings are detestable; No one is doing good.
2 But Jehovah looks down from heaven on the sons of men To see whether anyone has insight, whether anyone is seeking Jehovah.
3 They have all turned aside; They are all alike corrupt. No one is doing good, Not even one.
4 Do none of the wrongdoers understand? They devour my people as if they were eating bread. They do not call on Jehovah.
5 But they will be filled with great terror, For Jehovah is with the generation of the righteous.
6 You wrongdoers try to frustrate the plans of the lowly one, But Jehovah is his refuge.
7 O that Israel’s salvation may come from Zion! When Jehovah gathers back his captive people, Let Jacob be joyful, let Israel rejoice.
