David describeth the general corruption of mankind. He wisheth to see the salvation of God.
0 To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.
1 The fool 1hath said in his heart, There is no God. 2They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
2 The 1Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.
3 They are all 1gone aside, they are all together become afilthy: there is 2none that doeth good, no, not one.
4 1Have all the workers of iniquity 2no knowledge? who 3eat up my people as they eat bread, and call not upon the Lord.
5 1There awere they in great fear: for 2God is in the generation of the righteous.
6 Ye have 1shamed the counsel of the poor, because the Lord is his refuge.
7 aOh that the 1salvation of Israel were come out of Zion! when the Lord 2bringeth back the captivity of his people, Jacob shall rejoice, and Israel shall be glad.
