To the 1chief Musician upon 2Mahalath, 3Maschil, A Psalm of David.
THE4 fool hatha said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: thereb is none that doeth good.
God looked down from heaven upon the children of men, toc see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.
Every one of them is gone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.
Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge? who eat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.
There were they in great fear, where 5no fear was: for God hath scattered the 6bones of him 7that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, because God hath 8despised them.
Oh that the 9salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When God bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
