To the Chief Musician. Set to “Mahalath.” A 1Contemplation of David.
1 The afool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and have done abominable iniquity;
bThere is none who does good.
To see if there are any who understand, who cseek God.
They have together become corrupt;
There is none who does good,
No, not one.
4 Have the workers of iniquity dno knowledge,
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And do not call upon God?
5 eThere they are in great fear
Where no fear was,
For God has scattered the bones of him who encamps against you;
You have put them to shame,
Because God has despised them.
6 fOh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion!
When God brings back 2the captivity of His people,
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
