Denunciation of Godlessness

To the leader: according to Mahalath. A Maskil of David.

1Fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.”

They are corrupt, they commit abominable acts;

there is no one who does good.

2God looks down from heaven on humankind

to see if there are any who are wise,

who seek after God.

3They have all fallen away, they are all alike perverse;

there is no one who does good,

no, not one.

4Have they no knowledge, those evildoers,

who eat up my people as they eat bread,

and do not call upon God?

5There they shall be in great terror,

in terror such as has not been.

For God will scatter the bones of the ungodly;

they will be put to shame, for God has rejected them.

6O that deliverance for Israel would come from Zion!

When God restores the fortunes of his people,

Jacob will rejoice; Israel will be glad.
