The Fool Says, There Is No God
To the choirmaster. Of David.
g The h fool says in his heart, i "There is no God."
They are j corrupt, they do abominable deeds,
k there is none who does good.
The Lord l looks down from heaven on the children of man,
to see if there are any who understand,
who m seek after God.
They have all turned aside; together they have become n corrupt;
there is none who does good,
not even one.
Have they no o knowledge, all the evildoers
who p eat up my people as they eat bread
and q do not call upon the Lord?
There they are in great terror,
for God is with r the generation of the righteous.
You would shame the plans of the poor,
but the Lord is his s refuge.
Oh, that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion!
When the Lord t restores the fortunes of his people,
let Jacob rejoice, let Israel be glad.
