To the chief Musician upon aMahalath, bMaschil, A Psalm of David.

a Ps. 88, title.
b Ps. 32, title.

THE cfool hath said in his heart, There is no God. dCorrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good.


God elooked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, that did seek God.


fEvery one of them is ggone back: they are altogether become filthy; there is none that doeth good, no, not one.


Have the workers of iniquity hno knowledge? who ieat up my people as they eat bread: they have not called upon God.


There 1were they in great fear, where no fear was: for God hath jscattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee: thou hast put them to shame, kbecause God hath despised them.


2Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! When lGod bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
