1

2THEa3fool hath 4said in his heart, There is no God. They 5are corrupt, 6they have done abominable works, thereb is none that doeth good.

2

he LORD 7looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and 8seek God.

3

9They are all gone aside, they are all together become 10filthy: there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4

11Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my 12people as they eat bread, and 13call not upon the LORD.

5

14There were they in great fear: for God is 15in the generation of the righteous.

6

Ye have 16shamed the counsel of the poor, because the LORD is his refuge.

7

17Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the LORD bringeth back the 18captivity of his people, 19Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
