1 To the Chief Musician on Mahalath. A contemplation. A Psalm of David. The fool has said in his heart, [There is] no God. They acted corruptly, and have worked out abominable wickedness; [there is] not one doing good.
2 God looked down from Heaven on the sons of mankind to see if [any] was discerning, who was seeking God.
3 Every one has turned away; they have altogether become filthy; not one is doing good, no, not even one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? They eat up my people [as] they eat bread; they have not called on God.
5 There they dreaded [with] dread, [where] no dread was; for God has scattered the bones of him who camps against you; you have put [them] to shame because God rejects them.
6 Who will give from Zion the salvation of Israel? When God brings back the captivity of His people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
