To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.
1The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God#GodHebrew: Elohim They have corrupted themselves, they have done abominable works: there is none that doeth good. 2Jehovah looked down from the heavens upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God#GodHebrew: Elohim 3They have all gone aside, they are together become corrupt: there is none that doeth good, not even one.
4Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, eating up my people as they eat bread? They call not upon Jehovah. 5There were they in great fear; for God#GodHebrew: Elohim is in the generation of the righteous. 6Ye have shamed the counsel of the afflicted, because Jehovah was his refuge. 7Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When Jehovah turneth again the captivity of his people, Jacob shall be glad, Israel shall rejoice.
