14 The [spiritually ignorant] fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, they have committed repulsive and unspeakable deeds; There is no one who does good. 2 The Lord has looked down from heaven upon the children of men To see if there are any who understand (act wisely), Who [truly] seek after God, [longing for His wisdom and guidance]. 3 They have all turned aside, together they have become corrupt; There is no one who does good, not even one.
4 Have all the workers of wickedness and injustice no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call upon the Lord? 5 There they tremble with great fear, For God is with the [consistently] righteous generation. 6 You [evildoers] shamefully plan against the poor, But the Lord is his safe refuge.
7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the Lord restores His captive people, Then Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.
