|Folly and Wickedness of Men|
|For the Chief Musician; set to Mahalath. Maschil of David.|
| ||THE FOOL hath said in his heart, There is no God.|
Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity;
There is none that doeth good.
| ||God looked down from heaven upon the children of men,|
To see if there were any that did understand, 1
That did seek after God.
| ||Every one of them is gone back; they are together become filthy;|
There is none that doeth good, no, not one.
| ||Have the workers of iniquity no knowledge,|
Who eat up my people as they eat bread,
And call not upon God?
| ||There were they in great fear, where no fear was;|
For God hath scattered the bones of him that encampeth against thee:
Thou hast put them to shame, because God hath rejected them.
| ||Oh that the salvation of Israel were come out of Zion!|
When God bringeth 2 back the captivity of his people,
Then shall Jacob rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
