For the leader. Of David1 Fools say in their heart,
“There is no God.”
Vile, hateful their life is;
not one does good.
2 From heaven the Lord looks out
on humans, to see
if any are wise,
and care for God.
3 But all have turned bad,
the taint is on all;
not one does good,
no, not one.
4 Have they learned their lesson,
those workers of evil?
Who ate up my people,
never calling to the Lord.
5 Sore afraid will they be;
for God is among
those who are righteous,
6 you may mock the plans of the poor,
but the Lord is their refuge.
7 If only help from Zion
would come for Israel!
When the Lord brings his people
a change of fortune,
how glad will be Jacob,
and Israel how joyful!
