For the choir director; according to mahalath,[b] a maskil by David.
1 Godless fools say in their hearts, “There is no God.” They are corrupt. They do disgusting things. There is no one who does good things. 2 God looks down from heaven on Adam’s descendants to see if there is anyone who acts wisely, if there is anyone who seeks help from God. 3 Everyone has fallen away. Together they have become rotten to the core. No one, not even one person, does good things. 4 Are all those troublemakers, those who devour my people as if they were devouring food, so ignorant that they do not call on God? 5 There they are—panic-stricken— but there was no reason to panic, because God has scattered the bones of those who set up camp against you.[c] You put them to shame. After all, God has rejected them.
6 If only salvation for Israel would come from Zion! When God restores the fortunes of his people, Jacob will rejoice. Israel will be glad.
