To the victor; of◦ David.
The fool has said in his heart, there is no God.
They have corrupted,
they have made··abominable their action;
there is none who does good.
Jehovah looks··down from the heavens upon the sons of man
to see if there be◦ one who has··intelligence,
who inquires··after God.
They all turned··aside; together they have become··filthy◦;
there is none who does good,
not◦ even one.
Do not all the workers of iniquity◦ know,
eating··up my people, as if they eat··up bread?
Jehovah they call not.
There they dreaded with dread,
for God is in the generation of the just one.
The counsel of the afflicted have you shamed,
because◦ Jehovah is his protection.
Who shall give the salvation of Israel out··of Zion?
When Jehovah turns··back the captivity of His people,
Jacob shall rejoice,
Israel shall be··glad.
