To the director. Of David. 14 The foolish* one says in his heart: “There is no Jehovah.”+ Their actions are corrupt, and their dealings are detestable;No one is doing good.+ 2 But Jehovah looks down from heaven on the sons of menTo see whether anyone has insight, whether anyone is seeking Jehovah.+ 3 They have all turned aside;+They are all alike corrupt. No one is doing good,Not even one. 4 Do none of the wrongdoers understand? They devour my people as if they were eating bread. They do not call on Jehovah. 5 But they will be filled with great terror,+For Jehovah is with the generation of the righteous. 6 You wrongdoers try to frustrate the plans of the lowly one,But Jehovah is his refuge.+ 7 O that Israel’s salvation may come from Zion!+ When Jehovah gathers back his captive people,Let Jacob be joyful, let Israel rejoice.
