|Folly and Wickedness of Men|
|For the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.|
| ||THE FOOL hath said in his heart, There is no God.|
They are corrupt, they have done abominable works;
There is none that doeth good.
| ||Jehovah looked down from heaven upon the children of men,|
To see if there were any that did understand, 1
That did seek after God.
| ||They are all gone aside; they are together become filthy;|
There is none that doeth good, no, not one.
| ||Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge,|
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And call not upon Jehovah?
| ||There were they in great fear;|
For God is in the generation of the righteous.
| ||Ye put to shame the counsel of the poor,|
Because 2 Jehovah is his refuge.
| ||Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!|
When Jehovah bringeth 3 back the captivity of his people,
Then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
