1 Foolish people say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They do all kinds of horrible and evil things. No one does anything good.
2 The Lord looks down from heaven on all people. He wants to see if there are any who understand. He wants to see if there are any who trust in God. 3 All of them have turned away. They have all become evil. No one does anything good, no one at all.
4 Do all these people who do evil know nothing? They eat up my people as if they were eating bread. They never call out to the Lord. 5 But just look at them! They are filled with terror because God is among those who do right. 6 You who do evil keep poor people from succeeding. But the Lord is their place of safety.
7 How I pray that the God who saves Israel will come out of Zion! Then the Lord will bless his people with great success again. So let the people of Jacob be filled with joy! Let Israel be glad!
