1To the Overseer. --By David. A fool hath said in his heart, `God is not;' They have done corruptly, They have done abominable actions, There is not a doer of good.
2Jehovah from the heavens Hath looked on the sons of men, To see if there is a wise one--seeking God.
3The whole have turned aside, Together they have been filthy: There is not a doer of good, not even one.
4Have all working iniquity not known? Those consuming my people have eaten bread, Jehovah they have not called.
5There they have feared a fear, For God [is] in the generation of the righteous.
6The counsel of the poor ye cause to stink, Because Jehovah [is] his refuge.
7`Who doth give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When Jehovah doth turn back [To] a captivity of His people, Jacob doth rejoice--Israel is glad!
